    ??? Which copying and pasting said term reveals zero about bub or his tucker. . .lol google ain't THAT smart after all!

    I can't imagine how else kids could be successfully X-rayed, let alone photographed.

    Now for us adults, we just get arranged bodily via tech and told to 'hold it'. I'm having an issue with my foot. The X-ray tech twisted my position to get a flat shot of [left foot-left side] arch and instep while I was to prop torso off table with my arms.
    She laughed when I quipped "...been such a long time since I posed this way." with a cheesy grin.
    Naturally, I've used that one-liner before.
    Sincerely,

    ...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...

    That kid looks a little short in the legs, doesn't he? And with a name like Pigg-O-Stat, I still wasnn't sure it wasn't an elaborate April Fools joke. (Google is my friend.)

    They used to chain 'em down or use a taser didn't they?

    I'm surprised the bub isn't squealing.........like a pigg: probably a yellow pill at 5mg= Mothers Little Helper; lol. That is why he looks legless.

    i'm an X-ray tech. this device is so you can get a chest X-ray of a baby or very young child. he/she looks very calm because they are. i have some fall asleep when in a pig-o-stat. the only thing that is cruel about this is they have to be crying when you take the X-ray. so you pinch their thigh. they cry and then take a large breath and then cry some more. the X-ray is taken during the breath so the lungs are expanded.

    Huh, my first thought when I saw the thumbnail was "who put a kid in a blender" Imagine my relief to see it's a medical instrument.
