    I was looking up the LOINC code for a KUB, and while I was able to find the code I was looking for using the related names, I noticed a great deal of other AP view x-rays resulted with that same related name that did not seem related to a KUB. There seems to be a pattern of (almost) all AP view x-rays having KUB/Kidney-Ureter-Bladder as a related name. I just found this odd and worth noting in case I was missing something. A sampling of the codes that resulted in my search is below.

    Thanks for any guidance you might be able to provide as to why these terms have KUB as a related name.

    Hello Renee,

    Let me try again – you are absolutely correct that the related name KUB should not be associated with all of these AP View x-rays.  Thank you for your report and we are working on a correction for the next release.

    Best regards,
