Dear Friends,

As Dr. Rusty mentioned in the most recent Diploma case, it is amazing how old school radiologists survived without CT. I recently saw one such case, diagnosed because I am one of this old breed. Image belongs to a 67-year-old woman who had a preoperative chest before lumbar spine surgery.

Dear Friends,

Muppet is getting old and cranky and needs a vacation badly. We have decided to go to Minorca together and spend the Holy Week there.

Sorry, no case this week. Muppet needs to relax and enjoy his free time. Will be back on April 6.
