I remember when I was in medical school, I thought I could learn everything I needed to be great doctor. Then I wandered into the ophthalmology wing of the medical library and saw a four volume textbook on eyes. Four volumes! On just the eyes!
I realized then that there was no way you can know everything, in the same way you all will not learn everything about how to assess radiographs in the next hour. If you did, what would be the point of five year residencies? So just take away as much as you can and don’t get caught up in the details just yet. We’re only scratching the surface.
A guest lecturer tries to calm the class after putting up case study radiographs that nobody could interpret resulting in panic.
