Why is X-ray - KUB done ?

A kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB) study is an X-ray study that allows your doctor to assess the organs of your urinary and gastrointestinal systems. Doctors can use it to help them diagnose urinary disorders and causes of abdominal pain. They can also use it to help them determine the size and position of your bladder, kidneys, and ureter. Doctors order a KUB study to identify abdominal pain that they haven’t diagnosed yet. People who have symptoms of gallstones or kidney stones may also be candidates for this study. Having a KUB study may help your doctor confirm a diagnosis. Someone who has swallowed a foreign object might also benefit from the study, which can help the doctor determine whether the object is in the stomach. During the test, X-ray images are taken of the structures of your digestive system, including the intestines and stomach. The KUB procedure can help your doctor diagnose certain gastrointestinal conditions, such as - an intestinal blockage, foreign objects in the stomach, certain tumors, kidney stones and certain types of gallstones.
