Medicine Mondays

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is just going to be a short post on “Dural Venous Sinus Variations“. Dural Venous Sinus Variations? Yea. So, in radiology, we commonly receive studies with clinical concern for dural venous sinus thrombosis. This can be a difficult diagnosis to make. Sometimes it’s a slam dunk and you see abnormal intrinsic T1 signal in the superior sagittal sinus or sigmoid sinus or something. However, other times it can […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This is just a short reminder to “Take care of your eyes“. Take care of your eyes? Don’t worry, we’re all doing fine over here. However, I want to take the time to share a story with you guys. Basically, my wife and I both wear glasses and contact lenses. I’m sure this is common for many, many doctors. However, because of our schedules as medical students, residents, and […]

So today is kind of an educational day on what to look for in this interesting case, from both the clinical side and radiology side. […]

I was planning to take the day off, however, I decided to write about “Doctors Shouldn’t Retire Early?”, as a followup to my previous post:  Stuff versus Time and physician FIRE comments. Doctors Shouldn’t Retire Early I actually was going to take the day off, but I thought this was kind of a fitting post for Labor Day. Well, like I said in my previous post, I didn’t read the whole […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today we’re going to talk about “Free Med School?” in reference to NYU. This will be a short post. Free Med School? In general, there aren’t too many ways to go to medical school for free. One is that you are awarded a scholarship, which is pretty uncommon in medical school. Two is that you do an MD PhD program in which your training is free, trading time (doing […]
