Ureteral calculi are one of the most common acute abdomen, most of which are from renal calculi. Color Doppler ultrasound plays a very important role in the diagnosis of ureteral calculi, and has the advantages of simplicity, economy, non-invasive, no radiation, and repeatable examination. The purpose of this study is to investigate the clinical value of color Doppler ultrasound in the diagnosis of ureteral calculi. To achieve this goal, a retrospective analysis was performed to analyze the clinical symptoms, ultrasonographic appearances and results of 112 patients with ureteral calculi who were treated in author’s hospital from March 2016 to March 2018. It showed that there were 5 cases of bilateral ureteral calculi, 59 cases of left ureteral calculi, 48 cases of right ureteral calculi, 42 cases of upper ureteral calculi, 11 cases of middle ureteral calculi and 59 cases of lower ureteral calculi in the results of the 112 patients with ureteral calculi. As ultrasound examination can show the location, number and size of the calculi, which can help clinical treatment and can be used as the first choice for ureteral calculi. Therefore, it is concluded that ultrasound diagnosis of ureteral calculi has the advantages of painless, non-invasive, convenient and easy to operate repeatedly, and can be used as the first choice for checking ureteral calculi.
