The angle between the axis of the lower pole infundibular and ureteropelvic axis (angle 1), and the angle between lower pole infundibular axis and main axis of pelvis-ureteropelvic junction point (angle 2) are easily measured on standard excretory urography. Determining the cut-off values of these angles and other significant predictors of success may help in detecting the renal anatomy and the patients who benefit from SWL.
