What Do You Know About The Abdominal X-ray? - Quiz

Often abbreviated as AXR or KUB, an abdominal (abs) X-ray is — like the name suggests — an X-ray of the abdomen. Take this quiz to find out more.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these abbreviations relates to abdominal X-ray?

    • A.

      KUB

    • B.

      ASSR

    • C.

      STHC

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. KUB
    Explanation
    The abbreviation "KUB" stands for "Kidneys, Ureters, and Bladder," which is a type of abdominal X-ray that is used to visualize these specific organs. The other abbreviations (ASSR and STHC) do not relate to abdominal X-rays. Therefore, the correct answer is KUB.

    Which of these indications means abdominal X-ray ?

    • A.

      Stone in the gullet

    • B.

      Bowel obstruction

    • C.

      Gaseous exhalation

    • D.

      Tract bleeding

    Correct Answer
    B. Bowel obstruction
    Explanation
    Bowel obstruction is the correct answer because an abdominal X-ray is commonly used to diagnose and evaluate bowel obstructions. This imaging technique can help identify any blockages or abnormalities in the intestines, such as strictures, tumors, or adhesions. It allows healthcare professionals to visualize the location and extent of the obstruction, which can guide further treatment decisions.

    What is the best alternative for diagnosing the problem?

    • A.

      X-ray exposure

    • B.

      CT scan

    • C.

      Neurosurgery

    • D.

      Sedation

    Correct Answer
    B. CT scan
    Explanation
    A CT scan is the best alternative for diagnosing the problem because it provides detailed cross-sectional images of the body, allowing doctors to see internal structures and identify any abnormalities or issues. X-ray exposure may provide some information, but it is not as detailed or comprehensive as a CT scan. Neurosurgery is a treatment option, not a diagnostic tool. Sedation is a method to relax a patient and is not directly related to diagnosing the problem.

  • 4. 

    In which case is acute abdominal pain likely to have low sensitivity?

    • A.

      In children

    • B.

      In adult

    • C.

      In very old individuals

    • D.

      In infants below 2 years

    Correct Answer
    A. In children
    Explanation
    Acute abdominal pain is likely to have low sensitivity in children because they may have difficulty expressing their symptoms accurately or may not be able to communicate their pain effectively. Additionally, children may not have developed the same level of pain perception as adults, making it harder to diagnose the cause of their abdominal pain. Therefore, healthcare providers need to be cautious and consider other factors when evaluating abdominal pain in children.

    What will give a better overall surgical strategy?

    • A.

      Computer tomography

    • B.

      CT scan

    • C.

      Cervical treatment

    • D.

      Sterilization

    Correct Answer
    A. Computer tomography
    Explanation
    Computer tomography (CT scan) is a medical imaging technique that provides detailed cross-sectional images of the body. It enables surgeons to visualize the internal structures and organs, helping them to plan and execute surgical procedures more effectively. By providing accurate and precise information about the patient's anatomy, CT scans can assist in determining the best surgical approach, identifying potential complications, and improving overall surgical strategy. Therefore, CT scans are essential in developing a comprehensive surgical plan and achieving better surgical outcomes.

    What does abdominal ultrasonography mean?

    • A.

      Process of treating abdominal X-ray

    • B.

      Process of finalizing patient treatment

    • C.

      Method of viewing abdominal anatomical structure

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Method of viewing abdominal anatomical structure
    Explanation
    Abdominal ultrasonography refers to the method of viewing the anatomical structure of the abdomen. It involves the use of ultrasound technology to create images of the organs and tissues in the abdominal area. This technique is commonly used to diagnose and monitor various conditions and diseases affecting the abdomen, such as liver disease, gallstones, kidney stones, and tumors. It is a non-invasive and safe procedure that provides valuable information about the internal structures of the abdomen.

    What does the process of abdominal ultrasonography use?

    • A.

      X-ray radiation

    • B.

      Infrared light

    • C.

      Ultrasound waves

    • D.

      Electromagnetic waves

    Correct Answer
    C. Ultrasound waves
    Explanation
    Abdominal ultrasonography is a medical imaging technique that uses ultrasound waves to create images of the organs and structures in the abdomen. Ultrasound waves are high-frequency sound waves that can penetrate through the body and bounce back when they encounter different tissues. These echoes are then used to create a visual representation of the internal organs on a monitor. Unlike X-ray radiation or electromagnetic waves, ultrasound waves do not involve ionizing radiation, making it a safer and non-invasive option for imaging the abdomen.

    KUB include all the following except....

    • A.

      Bladder

    • B.

      Kidney

    • C.

      Urinary

    • D.

      Ureter

    Correct Answer
    C. Urinary
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Urinary". This is because the question asks for something that is not included in KUB (Kidney, Ureter, Bladder) and "Urinary" is a term that refers to the entire urinary system, which includes the kidneys, ureters, and bladder. Therefore, "Urinary" is not excluded and is not part of the KUB.

    Which of these is a radio-constant agent?

    • A.

      Aluminum chloride

    • B.

      Barium sulfate

    • C.

      Iodine tetraoxide

    • D.

      Sulphur oxide

    Correct Answer
    B. Barium sulfate
    Explanation
    Barium sulfate is a radio-constant agent because it is used in medical imaging procedures such as X-rays and CT scans. It is a contrast agent that helps to enhance the visibility of certain structures or abnormalities in the body. Barium sulfate is radio-constant because it does not undergo any significant changes or reactions when exposed to radiation, making it safe and reliable for use in medical imaging.

    What is the synonym of abdominal pain?

    • A.

      Stomach ache

    • B.

      Tract bleed

    • C.

      Abs agony

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Stomach ache
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Stomach ache." Abdominal pain is commonly referred to as a stomach ache. It is a discomfort or pain that is felt in the area between the chest and the pelvis. The terms "tract bleed" and "abs agony" do not accurately describe abdominal pain and are not synonyms for it. Therefore, the correct synonym for abdominal pain is "stomach ache."
