Radiology Mistakes on TV

How many of us radiologists notice this on TV and cinemas every now and then! A very interesting blog post by Mike Enriquez in Advanceweb Magazine wherin he says--"The number of times I have seen radiographs incorrectly placed on the view box in one of these shows is way too many. I mean, basic stuff that the show producers just can't seem to get right! Numerous PA chest images have been shown reversed! How about when AP Abdomen Flat Plate images are viewed upside down? And, then, there are the insults to technical quality! Ever notice how any time you are shown an AP skull image and the entire image receptor has been exposed? Not any signs of collimation or a R/L marker anywhere to be seen!"

Just watch Scrubs. Maybe the best sitcom currently on TV, but the medical imaging mistakes are often funnier than the writing.
