Clinicians and engineers have teamed up to design new imaging approaches that target high-risk patients.

Ryan Hsi, M.D., an assistant professor in urologic surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, is part of a team that is challenging how kidney stones have been treated for the last 20 years.

Hsi and colleagues are utilizing novel beam-forming methods for imaging. They are also using Vanderbilt’s 24-hour urine collection to identify patients at high risk of stone formation, tapping into the power of large EHR data sets and machine learning.
