Ultrasound Therapy clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Ultrasound therapy sends sound waves into the body to help treat medical conditions. UCSF is recruiting for a clinical trial to assess the accuracy of ultrasound in detecting leftover fragments during a kidney stone surgery. Scientists want to see if ultrasound can replace traditional imaging methods to locate residual fragments before the surgery is finished.
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The purpose of this study is to assess the accuracy of ultrasound and traditional fluoroscopy to find the residual fragments before retrograde intrarenal surgery is complete. This would ultimately limit the need for radiation exposure and improve the quality of clinical care given to patients and healthcare teams.
