X ray is not usually done to diagnose cystitis. An x ray of KUB (Kidneys, ureters, and bladder) is done to probe the suspicion for emphysematous cystitis. In case of emphysematous cystitis, it can show presence of gas in the bladder wall. Sometimes, an x ray that is taken for another reason, might reveal gas in the urinary bladder and thus lead to the diagnosis of emphysematous cystitis.

X Ray Findings

An X ray KUB of a patient with emphysematous cystitis can show air/gas in the bladder wall.[1][2][3]
