What is CECT KUB?
Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the Kidneys Ureter Bladder (KUB) is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the urinary tract which includes the kidneys, ureters, and urinary bladder. These cross sectional images are then used to form a three dimensional image of these organs to detect and diagnose various disorders.
Why is CECT KUB done?
- • To detect and diagnose conditions affecting renal structure and functioning • To detect obstructions in the upper urinary tract like stones in the kidneys or bladder • To detect presence of tumors (abnormal growth) in the kidneys or bladder • To detect infections or inflammations in the upper respiratory tract • To detect lesions or abscesses in the kidneys • To guide diagnostic procedures like biopsy or treatment procedures like kidney transplant • To assess the efficacy of a kidney transplant
