We had another great combined journal club with the SAEM Academy Of Emergency Ultrasound and reviewed the recent landmark NEJM article Ultrasonography Versus Computed Tomography For Suspected Nephrolithiasis.

Several authors of the study, including Ralph Wang, John Bailitz, Jill Corbo, Ruth Goldstein, Vicki Noble, and Jessica Wang, were on this month’s panel. Ralph Wang did an in-depth review of the study, and several panelists talked about the logistics and behind the scenes aspects of such a large study.

We had a great discussion regarding details of the study, how this study can change clinical practice, as well as future directions for additional research.
