Each month, we visit Dr. Blaufox’s Museum of Historical Medical Artifacts to take a look back at the medical equipment that cleared the way for what patients encounter in doctors’ offices and operating rooms of today. Some equipment may be recognizable, while other featured inventions have since become obsolete or have had their usefulness discredited.

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.
A 12“ x 6.5“ x 4” black box with white metal handle contains 4” diameter rubber bulb with metal and glass fittings, metal connector tubing with filter, two large 12” metal catheters, funnel and L-shaped metal fittings and hardened rubber tubing. Pieces marked Kny Scheerer, Germany.
