MR Results: Radiologist reports findings (first part of report) and interprets them for an impression of anatomic diagnoses or possible diagnoses (final part of the report). This impression is often interpreted further by your physician who ordered it, which in many cases means taking the radiologist's interpretation rather than looking at the images themselves. ...Read more

Many products are safe and beneficial when used appropriately, but these can kill. ...Read more

Can the nurse read the reading on a spyrometry test or must that come from a doctor or pulgometrist?
Many options: Anyone trained to do spirometry can read the results, and often the machine itself prints out an interpretation. However i would strongly recommend that a full interpretation must be done in the context of you and your symptoms by someone managing your care. That could be an advance practice nurse, a family physician/internist or pulmonologist. ...Read more

Minor mystery: I've known ever since residency that the mere stress of a venipuncture can cause an elevated "spot" prolactin, requiring that it be confirmed with suppression or other testing. Since prolactin is produced in response to factors from the brain over moments, it's in the brain wiring -- like the production during orgasm, nipple stimulation, or sleep. Anybody else know more? Thanks. ...Read more
