abstract

  • A mobile wooden commode was designed and built for use in defecography. The commode is made of 1/2-inch-thick plywood with birch veneer and a solid clear pine seat. Water or copper sheets are recommended for radiation filtration. A radiopaque ruler attached to the commode with a spring enables midline measurements. The modifications suggested by the authors have helped with setup and have improved the images acquired.
