support the addition of the disease part - not sure about adding radiograph, slows reading time for no reason.

Agree, don’t think we include it anywhere else we reference KUB; going to take that part out

Maybe its just my personal experience but just seeing “KUB” doesn’t immediately make me think “x-ray of kidneys, ureter, bladder.”

@Cameron The more I think about it the more KUB makes less sense here since those structures aren’t what we or the card is looking for.
Perhaps even better would be changing KUB to abdominal x-ray. That’s how AMBOSS phrases the diagnostic testing, https://next.amboss.com/us/article/q40C4T

AMBOSS does list KUB as an abbreviation for abdominal x-ray

Think we can make the case that wherever we reference KUB it might be more clear to state abdominal x-ray (all of those cards are about some GI disorder) but imo it’s a net zero for the deck as we are consistent whenever we do use KUB

I’d be in favor of KUB → Abdominal x-ray across the deck; its just not an abbreviation I’ve come across frequently, if at all, outside of the deck tbh.

That said, I get that it’d be a net zero so the need isn’t really there for it.
