Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotrispy (ESWL) is a procedure based on sound waves to crash kidney stones on the focus. The sound waves are sent to the body of patient when the kidney stone is not even on the focus. When the stone is not on the focus, the sound waves can damage the soft tissue of the kidney. This damage can be prevented by a feedback mechanism that determines the place of kidney stones depending on the images taken from ESWL device. In this study, an automated system is developed to detect kidney stones from X ray images. ©2010 IEEE.
