The new cystoscopic-roentgenographic table presented here is constructed somewhat on the principle employed by me in a cystoscopic table devised and reported several years ago.
It is a high table, the top being 36 inches from the floor. This makes it unnecessary for the cystoscopist to bend over or lean forward in performing a cystoscopic examination. He may sit upright and the examination is not an uncomfortable event for him. It is not necessary for the patient to be put in a modified Trendelenburg position during the cystoscopic examination. In the latter posture, always necessary with low tables, gravity does not aid in the collection of specimens, and indeed reflux of bladder urine beside the catheters, thus contaminating the ureteral specimens, is possible.
The legs of the table are supplied with large 6 inch wheels at the head end of the table, so that it can be easily moved by
