The cystometrogram at 70 years.J Urol. 1998 Aug; 160(2):316-9.JU
The origin and the development of the cystometrogram are described.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
We reviewed and analyzed the published literature on cystometrography.
The cystometrogram originated in the latter half of the nineteenth century, an age of intense clinimetric investigation. Early investigators studied fundamental aspects of bladder function with meticulous techniques using relatively crude equipment. The first clinical cystometer was designed by Dalton K. Rose in 1927. He was followed by Nesbit, McLellan, Muschat and Munro, who brought the cystometrogram to its current key role in modern urology.
Numerous investigators have advanced the knowledge of bladder function using the cystometrogram, a key urological tool.
