1. treating an 11mm kidney stone?..

Some of the well known facilities around here may be using older imaging and
sonic equipment.

Most 1cm stones have be taken care of without much problem by a good general
urology doc. You do not need much more imaging than a CT scan (almost every
hospital has one of these). Depending on where the stone is, they can
either break it up with ESWL (aka shock wave). Any urology doc should have
access to this. The other main option is to run a very small scope up next
to the stone and bust up (often with a laser).

Take care,

Matt

I've only heard of IVP, sonogram or xray for imaging stones. The
treatment I get for mine is painkillers, but I pass stones every 30-45
days and it is no longer a hospital-worthy event for me. Allopurinol and
PolyCitraK failed to reduce my pH (and I'm allergic to Allopurinol) and
HCTZ did not reduce my hypercalciuria.

I meant "increase" my pH, not reduce; I was thinking "reduce urinary
acidity."
