Cardiac CT.
I have gotten a chance to look at a number of CT scans; I swear these images never get old.

Castell’s Sign.
Practicing physical exams today and this was part of the abdominal assessment. It is a medical sign that is used to evaluate splenomegaly. By itself, the sensitivity and specificity of the test is 82 and 83 percent respectively; what this means is the sign will confirm the presence of splenomegaly 82 percent of the time when you actually have it and rule out splenomegaly 83 percent of the time when you actually do not have it. Like any test, this is not perfect, but when combined with other clinical information, it can help indicate whether further tests should be done.
To observe Castell’s sign, the patient must be supine. In the lowest intercostal space in the left anterior axillary line, percussion is done. Typically this point is tympanic. If there is splenomegaly, during full inspiration the enlarged spleen will descend along the posterolateral abdominal wall into this area, resulting in a dull note. This is considered a positive sign.

The Inspiration Pad by TM Shop. The 32 pages of free flowing concept space. Are you feeling inspired yet? The coolest notebook I’ve seen in a while.

I should really pick up origami again though I highly doubt this can be folded with just one piece of paper.

Sometimes, all it takes for a great idea to come along is a nice mid-day  nap.

3D grandfather clock puzzle

A very long time ago, I bought one of those 3D puzzles that you can assemble into a grandfather clock—a working one at that. It takes a AA battery to run and you have to remove the back panel in order to get to it.

Well ever since I moved out that clock has kind of fallen into disrepair and yesterday I took some time to reassembled some pieces that fell off, rebuild the internal frame and change the battery. It was only when I was all done did I realize that a piece of the crown is missing! What a travesty!

But on the bright side, it runs again.
