Hello and hope you are doing well.

All kidney stones are visible on CT scans. CT scan is now considered the examination of choice for the detection and localization of urinary stones. In rare instances a CT scan may miss a CT-lucent stone. Radiolucent stones, which do not appear on CT scans, may show up on ultrasound imaging studies. So, discuss this with your consulting doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
