laughter the best medicine

Four consultants went duck hunting - a registrar, a radiologist, a surgeon and a pathologist. The registrar was up first.
The ducks flew over and he aimed the shotgun but didn't fire. When asked why he replied that he thought they looked like ducks coming towards him,
but geese flying away, when i was sure what they were they were gone.
The radiologist was next. The ducks flew over, the radiologist raised his gun but didn't fire.
When asked why he said that he thought they were ducks on the AP view, but by the time he could see
them in the lateral it was too late.
Next was the surgeon. As the ducks came along he started firing wildly in the air, ducks falling like rain.
When the smoke cleared he picked up the ducks, handed them to the pathologist saying "here you are.
Now tell me are these ducks or not?"

CT scans unwrap secrets of British Museum's Egyptian mummies

Read about the role of CT scanners in Egyptology. This is old news but my best guess while talking about egyptology is that the ball park figures are in the range of a few hundred years, so 2years is not that bad.
Has anyone heard of the term Paleoradiology?

CT technology to help unearth ancient Roman city secrets

It is very interesting to see how radiology and its applied aspects can help in various other fields, this is one such intresting story.

CT: A New Nondestructive Method for Visualizing and Characterizing Ancient Roman Glass Fragments in Situ in Blocks of Soil By Roel J. Jansen et al.
Reference-RadioGraphics 2006;26:1837-1844
"A rare, complete ancient Roman burial site was discovered near the Dutch village of Bocholtz. In addition to many preserved grave offerings, there were countless fragments of deteriorated glass objects still buried in the ground. This glass was in very poor condition, however, and there was no possibility of excavating it directly. Instead, archeologists working at the site decided to dig up blocks of soil containing the glass fragments. High-resolution spiral computed tomography (CT) with multiplanar reformation, shaded-surface-display rendering, and volume rendering was used to obtain detailed information about the position, number, and form of the deteriorated glass fragments. CT-guided removal of the soil made it possible to restore some of the objects excavated from the blocks. In five of the 14 excavated objects, a correct Isings classification could be made based on the CT findings. In addition, CT was very important for the reconstruction of the layout of the burial chamber, the compilation of a list of grave contents, and the positioning of these contents within the chamber."

This is the site for The International Association of Dento-Facial Radiology.
It is the website that all oral radiologists and people involved with dental radiology should visit regularly to get a better understanding of the developments and events involved with this field!
