Kidney stone: A kidney stone in the ureter may be seen on a plain film, but other radiographic modalities are better such as an IVP, CT scan, or ultrasound. You may have some blood in the urine as the stone passes through the urethral system. If you still have pain and have not passed the stone, follow up with your doc, as you may need lithotripsy or some procedure to break up the stone and allow it to pass.
