KUB Radiography

KUB stands for kidney, ureter and bladder. A KUB radiograph is an X-ray performed for the purpose of examining the urinary system and its surrounding structures.

The region covered by a KUB radiograph includes the area that spans the superior poles of the kidneys downwards to the pubic symphysis. This radiograph, like all X-rays, employs the use of external electromagnetic beams to acquire images of internal tissues and organs.

These beams pass through our tissues and project onto plates that are treated beforehand to create a negative (i.e. a picture).
