Medicine Mondays

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again today and today is going to be a pretty random (and short) post about “Wisdom Teeth“. Wisdom Teeth While “Wisdom Teeth” technically falls into “dentistry” and isn’t technically “Medicine Mondays”, let’s just let that slide for today ok? So I went to have my teeth cleaned this past weekend. Since I met my wife back in 2004 I’ve been pretty diligent of brushing my teeth (and even flossing sometimes!). […]

Stokes Adams Syndrome
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. I realize I forgot to post on Friday for Finance Fridays, but I had some house stuff come up which I’ll get into on Wednesday probably. Anyways, today we’re going to talk about Stokes-Adams Syndrome. Stokes-Adams Syndrome? Yea. So, if you had asked me last week what this was, a vague haze would have gone through my mind about this particular eponym. I do recall having heard and learned […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today we’re going to ponder “The Ideal Job“. Why a Unicorn? Well, “The Ideal Job” is kind of like the Unicorn in that people chase after it, but it probably doesn’t exist. That’s ok though. It’s an ideal, not necessarily something that can actually happen. I mean, every job has its advantages and disadvantages. However, just because your job is a certain way doesn’t mean it needs to stay […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. I’ve talked about “Would you do it again?” in regards to being a doctor before. However, today we’re going to revisit the topic. Would you do it again? The TL;DR is that yes I would do it again. However, this answer is different for different people. There is a surprising amount of doctors (that I know), that would not do it again. The explanations are pretty broad. Hours are […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This is kind of a short (and late) post about Work Life Balance. Work Life Balance? In general, when physicians think about work-life balance, I think we primarily focus on factors we can control, rather than what we really want. For example, as a doctor, perhaps you want to retire earlier and save more money. So the first thing you think about is: “How can I make more money?” […]

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 […]
