I was perusing Dr Bates Suture for a Living blog when I came across the Image Of Surgery blog which I found to be arty, interesting and downright fascinating. I have added it to my blogroll and look forward to reading/viewing all of it when time allows.
I wish I knew what they are doing. What kind of surgeries? And of course I was drawn to the urology pics. I have questions...like what is that florescent looking tube used for? And what are the instruments the doc is looking at? At first I thought that was a stent showing up on the screen but am now wondering if it is a surgical instrument.
I wish I could've watched my own procedures. Well...maybe not. But I'd be curious to see them done on someone else.
Also, in the urology pic with the 3 monitors/screens-is that a ureter on the 3rd screen on the right? It looks something like a pic my urologist gave me of my ureter the last time I was stented. Now if that isn't a ureter... then I just gave some doc passing through here a laugh and to that I say that is why you're wearing the white coat and I am not. ;)
P.S. It looks like the orthopedic docs need wipers to wash the spattered blood off the front of their head gear/mask/I don't know what you call it. Must be a messy OR for housekeeping to have to come in and clean up after.
