What is NCCT KUB?

The KUB NCCT Scan is the Non Contrast Computerized Tomography Scan of the Kidneys Ureter Bladder. It is a diagnostic procedure where rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the upper urinary tract, namely kidneys, ureters, and urinary bladder, which can then be used to form a three dimensional image of these organs to detect and diagnose various disorders.
