Abstract

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) uses either X-ray fluoroscopy or ultrasound to localize and determine the end point of treatment. We report radiation doses to patients and personnel from the Storz Modulith lithotripter system recently installed in the Lithotripter Centre, St. Thomas' Hospital, London. The mean annual radiation dose to patients and staff was calculated at 0.73 mSv and 4.8 mSv, respectively.
