ABC News
A New York City children’s hospital is putting the "arrr" in radiology with a new pirate-themed CT scanner.

New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital had been eyeing the General Electric machine because of its low radiation dose. But the ship-shaped scanner and a suite decorated with wavy floors and cartoon animals sealed the deal.

INDUSTRY NEWS


Bring on the foreign doctors
Slate
If President Barak Obama's healthcare reform plan is implemented in its current form, the United States will face an estimated shortfall of 130,000 doctors by 2025. To put that into perspective, consider that the current shortage, which inspires much handwringing, is less than one-half that amount, according to projections from the Association of American Medical Colleges.

You may know one, you may be one — the bosshole
AHEC Blog
In this enlightened time, when we speak fervently about leadership skills and innovation, it is improbable that bossholes still exist. We do know that this is not a genetic trait but learned. No MRI or research is going to find the gene or brain defect that causes it. There are substantial resources dedicated to describing it. Books, articles, definitions, shirts, hats, coffee cups, a website and even a game are in the works.
