Connecting the Dots Finally




DAMS SKY : India's First Medical Satellite Based Classroom Network


Connected the almost entire country via satellite link for medical students for intensive discussion, something never been done before , thousands of students came to attend this session. Like Steve Jobs would have said: "Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful that's what matters to me."



"Mint with a hole" in Radiology

The polo mint sign is a description given to a venous thrombosis on contrast enhanced CT imaging. When viewed in the axial plane, a thin rim of contrast persists around a central filling defect due to thrombus. This gives an appearance like that of the popular mint sweet, the polo, also referred to as the 'mint with a hole'.

For every doctor who dies by suicide, friends, family, and patients are left to wonder why; may be super ego, super brain, super careerist lead some people to very high expectations for themselves which are bound to go unmet at some point and  lack of real, long term coping mechanisms for all their uber-realism of pain, suffering, sickness, aging and death.

Radiology Joke- Not Satisfied with your report?

Radiology Joke: A patient complained to the radiologist, "I've been to three other doctors and none of them agreed with your diagnosis." The radiologist calmly replied, "Just wait until the autopsy, then they'll see that I was right."

Enough of clinicians judging our reports, we want to be checked only with the final confirmation. :-) :-)
