Abstract

Percutaneous puncture was first used as a diagnostic method by Wheeler (1942), although Dean (1939) had injected air into two cysts to determine their rate of refilling. The description of aspiration combined with the injection of radiopaque contrast medium by Lindblom (1946) initiated the use of the technique as a standard radiologic procedure. Wickbohm (1954) as well as Weens and Florence (1954) first described the translumbar puncture of the renal pelvis as a method of pyelography.
