Goals and Initiatives

What key initiatives and objectives does IKSI support?



Online atlas

A Web-based reference and resource of images and clinical scenarios from representative stone patients is now in development and will enable researchers and physicians worldwide to explore diagnoses, clinical decision-making, treatment options and outcomes.


A two-year fellowship in stone disease and minimally invasive urology has been offered since 1990 by Methodist Hospital in affiliation with the Indiana University School of Medicine. The fellowship provides urologists who have completed their residency with an extensive clinical and basic science experience in all aspects of kidney stone disease. The fellowship is approved by the Endourology Society (click here to view the Society’s Web site.)
