To the Editor:—  In The Journal, Dec. 5, 1936, page 1886, there is an interesting and valuable account of visualization of the amount of residual urine, by Edwin Beer. This is a very important procedure. I was under the impression that it was quite generally known, as I have been using it for a number of years. The question of priority is quite unimportant. However, I should like to quote from chapter I, "Urologic Diagnosis," by Hager and Braasch, in Dean Lewis's Practice of Surgery, volume VIII, in which I state on page 68:Excretory urography also affords a means of estimating the amount of bladder retention when it is not feasible or desirable to carry out retrograde study.
