A riveting presentation today to our Board of Overseers. First was Diane Covert, freelance photographer and creator of "Inside Terrorism: The X-Ray Project". This is an exhibit which uses actual X-rays and CT scans from two large hospitals in Israel to explore the effects of terrorism on a civilian population.

Updated 3/2017 -- all links removed as many no longer active and it was easier than checking each one.
Just wanted to link to some posts and information I found interesting.
First off Happy Hospitalist did a grand job using the Six Degrees method linking the posts of Grand Rounds 4:37 to himself. Check it out.
Second If you don't know about the SixDegrees.org, the charity charitable initiative that Kevin Bacon started in partnership with Network for Good, you may want to check it out. Either make your own charity badge (see mine on the left side-bar, bottom) as I raise money for the Arkansas Food Bank. Or add your charity to the Network for Good list.Third Paul Levy posted "Terrorism Near and Far"
Fourth Did you see this post at MedGadget on the New Luke Arm? Wow, I wish I could have helped develop this (wish I was smart enough). I always wondered if we would get to this point during my life since watching the Six Million Dollar Man as a kid. Wow!!!
Fifth Check out the x-rays of the Appendicolith over at Scalpel. I don't recall ever seeing one as large or as clear as this one. Impressive!
Sixth Dr Rob Oliver, Plastic Surgery 101, has a nice post on Malignant Hyperthermia and the recent patient death in Florida.
Seventh Fat Doctor's son had to have eye surgery this week. She shares the video of the surgery with us here.
Eighth Did you catch this "My Bloodsucking Visit to a Leech Clinic" posted May 23, 2008 by Canadian Medicine? [via Kevin,MD] Let me refer you back to my post on Leeches.
Ninth Don't forget that tomorrow night, Dr Anonymous will be hosting Dr Gwenn O'Keeffe on his Blog Talk Radio show.
Tenth And the "Peace Globe Movement" in the blogosphere. This is a simple idea brought forth by Mimi Lenox back in the fall of 2006. Mimi was even a guest on The Doctor Anonymous Show Number Eleven back on October 25, 2007.
