Radiologist no longer calls a spade…a spade

Atlanta, Georgia- A local radiologist, Dr. Crystal Clear is opening up a new world for radiology. Dr. Clear, a radiologist with over 15 years of experience teaching residents is getting them to classify everyday objects… but in radiology terms. “I think it is important not just for my current residents but for all radiology residents to start naming objects as a we would for medical issues to improve our vocabulary and to make things more ambiguous.

Radiologist no longer calls a spade…a spade

Atlanta, Georgia- A local radiologist, Dr. Crystal Clear is opening up a new world for radiology. Dr. Clear, a radiologist with over 15 years of experience teaching residents is getting them to classify everyday objects… but in radiology terms.

“I think it is important not just for my current residents but for all radiology residents to start naming objects as a we would for medical issues to improve our vocabulary and to make things more ambiguous. I think that is the key to starting meaningful conversations not just with our colleagues but with people outside of medicine!”

We spoke further with Dr. Clear about her methods and the feedback she has gotten. “Oh, the new method is just great! Let me give you an example that I start off with all my residents. I give them a deck of cards and pull out the queen of spades. See, you would call this a spade right? Well, as a radiologist, I would call it a polygon that resembles a rhomboid structure with a stalk; highly suspicious for a spade however cannot rule out a club but clinical correlation is recommended.”

Dr. Amy Biguous, another radiologist had this to say. “I think Dr. Clear is really on to something; the more descriptive a radiologist is about something so blatant, the more it really makes them shine as a radiologist! I tell my residents… always use 10 words when 2 would do. Being ambiguous lets the clinician expand their differentials based on what we see and lets them correlate clinically better!”

We hope that more radiologists take this approach to help clinicians correlate clinically more effectively.

New Poll Shows Majority Of People Who Voted For Trump Were Being Sarcastic

A new Gallup poll has revealed that a staggering 96 percent of Americans who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election were doing so sarcastically.

The data suggests that sarcasm is now a political priority for Republican Party supporters as well as their members, following President’s Trump claim that his suggestion to inject disinfectant into the bloodstream to cure coronavirus was actually a sarcastic remark.

Coincidentally, 4 percent of Trump supporters were rushed to the emergency room last night for self-administered injections of bleach and Lysol.

A number of world leaders have expressed their opinions following the revelation that Trump’s health advice was issued sarcastically.

Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador said, “Oh, President Trump said that, did he? In that case, we’re totally going to build a wall and then pay for it.”

Bernie Sanders commented, “I always knew that President Trump, the medical genius that he is, would be able to inject some levity into the situation with a good dose of sarcasm during a worldwide pandemic that has caused 200,000 deaths worldwide. You know you can always count on the collective intelligence of the American people to elect a tremendous leader.”

President Trump was asked for a response, but he declined, other than to say that he didn’t appreciate the sarcastic tone of the article.
