Focus Group : Head CTs Remain Fabulous Source of Abdominal Radiation



    • EM Doc:
      • “You mean to tell me that head CTs radiate other parts of the body too?”
    • Radiology Tech
      • “Turns out we can’t place only their heads on the other side of the glass.”
    • EM Doc:
      • “Hot Damn!  I bet that is responsible for soaring healthcare costs!”
    • Radiology Tech
      • “Maybe.  An bonus 400 x-rays to the belly suck, but we don’t see the effects of radiation overnight.  What about the billions of dollars of antibiotics prescribed yearly based on gestalt and not on guidelines?”
    • Radiation Oncologist:
      • “Zing!”
    • EM Doc
      • “...well this is awkward.  Uhh Radiation?”
    • Radiologist (skyping in from the beach):
      • “HA HA, You guys have to see patients!”
    • Registered Nurse:
      • “And care about them.”
    • Radiation Oncologist:
      • “Zing!”
    • Radiology Tech:
      • “Shut it nerd.  What if we just draped the patients in the scanner in a lead aprons?  That would work, right?”
    • Hospital CEO:
      • “Sounds expensive.  This conversation is over.  Come back when you have a Cochrane review with a Level A recommendation.”
