Simultaneous contrast visualization of the ab- dominal organs can be obtained utilizing many available techniques. Studies of these structures can also be obtained utilizing tomography with a simple modification of the large volume of high contrast concentration media technique advocated by others. The present technique advocated is a modification of the nephrotomographic techniques previously described and offers a safe survey technique to evaluate the kidneys, liver and spleen. The modified technique advocated uses moderate amounts of dye and a slow injection technique. It is devised so that it can be used as a routine pivotol and survey procedure. The efficacy of this technique is superbly illustrated in its use to diagnose a case of polycystic liver and kidney disease.
