Modern Olympus resectoscope, 1997.  Donor Olympus, Winter, Ibe.
Resectocopes

The resectoscope is an instrument that is inserted through the urethra and used to cut out tissue while allowing the physician to see exactly where he is cutting. One of urology's major uses for the resectoscope is the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

The Didusch Center has been collecting resectoscopes since 1971.
