<b>Tube baby</b> The photo is intriguing - why is an adorable baby jammed into what seems to be a giant test tube? The answer is simple: the bub is getting an x-ray in a paediatric immobiliser called the Pigg-O-Stat. After the image was shared on Reddit last week, one user commented, "I use one every time I do a chest X-ray on a baby. Its use is to immobilise the child so that they don’t wiggle around. It might look scary, but it saves me from repeating my images and excess radiation.” The Australian Institute of Radiography reported that the Pigg-O-Stat isn't used in Australia.
