5000+ scans done & counting

What is Ultrasound KUB

The ultrasound examination of the Kidneys, Ureters, and Bladder, often abbreviated as KUB, is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging procedure that helps in evaluating the structures of the urinary system. The kidneys are essential organs in the body responsible for filtering blood to remove waste, excess fluids, and electrolytes. The ureters are tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder, and the bladder is a sac that holds urine until it is excreted from the body through the urethra.

Purpose of Ultrasound KUB Test

Ultrasound Examination of the KUB uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the kidneys, ureters, and bladder, helping doctors assess the size, shape, and condition of these organs. It is commonly used to investigate causes of abdominal pain, urinary difficulties, kidney disease, or monitor known conditions affecting the urinary tract.


Specific Instructions:
  • Preparation: It's often required to have a full bladder for the examination, especially to assess the bladder properly. You may be instructed to drink several glasses of water and avoid urinating for a few hours before the examination.

  • Clothing: Wear comfortable clothing. You may need to change into a hospital gown. It is advisable to leave jewelry and other accessories at home.

  • During the Procedure: You will be asked to lie down on an examination table. A sonographer will apply a water-based gel to the skin over the area to be examined. This gel improves contact between the ultrasound probe and the skin. The sonographer will then move the probe over the area, and images will be displayed on a monitor.

  • Post-Procedure Care: You can resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure. If a specific condition is being monitored, follow the doctor's instructions regarding medication or lifestyle changes.
