Mahasin Gamalalddin, Zuhal Yassin, Walaa Saleh

The main objective of this study was to determine the chemical composition of the renal stones using computed tomography (CT) among Saudi population. It is a descriptive and prospective study of 30 Saudi patients with renal stones came to the radiology department for abdominal CT at King Fahd Hospital of the University in Al-Khobar. The study was conducted in the period from Oct to Dec 2017. Data was obtained include age, gender, body mass index (BMI) and chemical composition analysis of stones using CT-KUB helical scan without contrast. The study revealed that calcium stone has the highest prevalence (60 %) followed by the uric acid stones (27 %). The prevalence of the renal stones is high among the patients between 30- 50 year old, male gender and normal BMI. There is no significant difference (P > 0.05) between chemical composition and patient`s variables (age, gender and BMI).
