Norman 138; Garrison-Morton 6255; Heirs of Hippocrates 115; Blake/NLM 34; Wellcome II, p.115. - FIRST EDITION. "Baudelocque is associated with the technique of pelvic mensuration, the principles of which had been developed by Smellie... He invented a pelvimeter, and taught that the antero-posterior diameter of the pelvis could be reliably estimated by measuring the external conjugate of the pelvis, now usually referred to as 'Baudelocque's diameter.' This doctrine held sway until the advent of x-rays, which revealed its inadequacy." (Norman 138).
