Hope you enjoyed this edition of Radiology Grand Rounds submissions are requested for the next Radiology Grand Rounds posted every month last sunday. If you interested in hosting any of the future issues contact me at sumerdoc-AT-yahoo-DOT-com. This issue was different from other issues as we did not put up an image case as has been the trend in past few months. This month for the readers we have already put up many cases so we tried to give them something different from the world of medical imaging.
