X-Ray KUB Procedure

A kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB) X-ray may be taken to examine the abdomen for potential sources of pain or to examine the organs and GI system's organs.

Why is X-Ray KUB Done?

To help identify the source of abdominal pain, such as tumors, perforations, or blockage, a KUB X-ray may be carried out. A KUB X-ray can provide basic details on the kidneys, ureters, and bladder's size, shape, and location.

 This view is useful in assessing:

  • Neoplastic changes
  • Calcification
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Bowel fluid level
  • Abdominal pathology
  • Renal colic
  • Distended abdomen
  • Abdominal pain
  • Review of Post op. cases
  • Abdominal trauma
  • Abdominal aortic stent

Patient preparation

  • No preparation is needed. You should wear loose-fitting clothing.
  • Notify the x-ray technologist about your pregnancy. if, at the time of the procedure, you believe you could be pregnant.
  • If an abdominal supine x-ray is planned, laxatives and purgatives should be administered together with a soft meal to prepare the bowels.

Patient positioning

•  The patient is supine lying on his or her back on the x-ray table.

•   Patients need to change into a hospital gown, with radiopaque items such as belts, zippers, and buttons removed

•  The patient must be free from rotation; both shoulders and hips halfway from the table

•  The x-ray is taken with full inspiration

  • This causes the diaphragm to contract, hence compressing the abdominal organs, allowing all abdominal contents to be visualized in a single image.
