Gamma knife is a terrifying couple of words I've never seen together until just now. Son of a biatch.

FTFA: "A thorough internal investigation is under way."

What exactly needs investigating? Seems pretty cut and dry to me, sombody farked up and didn't pay attention to which side of the brain they were examining.

The report registered the incident as a "medical event," which indicates that the institute had problems with its use of radioactive materials, but "does not necessarily result in harm to the patient."

The gamma knives (and x-ray knives) are pretty amazing devices. I know one of the folks who treats people using the CyberKnife (pops) at Georgetown, and he says they're completely curing people who just a few years ago they were sending home to put their affairs in order. Unfortunately, we've still got the human element involved... which means stuff like this is gonna happen from time to time.

AHA!...So there is a cure?

The name gamma knife makes lightsabers sound like toys.

It slices ,dices, cubes, and makes fancy cut fries

gamma knife?

sounds to me like a heaping load of bulldick
 
2007-10-31 08:59:56 AM  
I'm a medical physicist in training, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies...

So... right is right, and left is left. I gotta make sure to remember that stuff...

Don't make me cut you with mah gamma knife.

How does the eventual zombie outbreak begin? Is it radiation, a disease or some forgotten Chinese mutation? Just curious.

poor zombie castro must be going hungry on this one

I only use the Grandpa knife...The Gamma Knife is too sharp!

"Because we are committed to the highest quality patient care, we are taking this very seriously,"

I think your definition of "highest quality" might need some adjustment...

Cyberknife moves with you.

God I hate that commercial.
 
2007-10-31 09:34:12 AM  
If that was me, I'd have half a mind to sue.

Really, it's a no-brainer.

I thought it started when two unsuspecting guys uncover a secret military container full of noxious gas.

What about a gene gun?

If the machine thought he was going in head first when he really went in feet first, wouldn't it have radiated his feet?

I smell a lawsuit... then again, the hospital will drag it out until he is dead.

So what happens why they fubar something like this?

Many moons ago in AP Physics, one of the tricks our instructor taught us to use during the Electricity and Magnetism portion of the exam was the "Right Hand Rule" for determining electrical field flow. Of course, in the heat of the practice exams, the righties among us would sometimes hold a pencil in our right hand and use our free hand (ahem) to do the rule (doh!).
This was solved on the actual exam day, when our instructor acquired a CPR dummy and taped a sign to its mouth: "Your *other* right." Ahhh, good times. This article just brought back that memory.
/farking idiot technician - stick to the MRI scanning protocol!
//radiation tech gets raised eyebrows - dude, this is not a mindless, repetitive job...you gotta think about where your sending that radiation!

I was half expecting Psylocke pictures.
(I know she doesn't wield a *gamma* knife, but it's the first thing I thought of.)

As a gamma knife success story, let me just say HOLY SHIAT!

looks like someone used the gamma knife on you too....

You may want to look up these lyrics next time you post them.

Um, whoever put that guy in backwards to get scanned is an idiot. I'm not sure how they did that. The patients head is put in a coil which only fits properly one way...
