Abstract: 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).
