Phlegmish Fjords Abound

Did you know that X-ray machines no longer need film? Yup, my doctor's office just upgraded to digital. Instead of film they now stick you between the radiation and some digital receptor thingy. So, the X-ray Tech is telling me all about this so I ask her if I can get a copy of my X-rays. She says "yup" and makes me a CD of them, including the program you use to look at them like they did on the light-on-the-wall thing before. Pretty cool stuff. Anyway, so there's one of my pictures, pretty hot nasal cavaties, eh? Well, the good news is that we think my cough has been figured out. All we had to do was match the time the cough started with the time my cholesterol medicine was changed. Hmmmm. Yup, you guessed it, they happened right about the same time. So we changed it again, and in 4 weeks I go back.

Gee, do you think anyone'll recognize you from this photo?
Nifty.
I have film x-rays of my jaw before wisdom teeth removal, showing 4 impacted molars grown to the bone (it took the doctor almost 4 hours to drill them out without breaking my jaw).
But I don't have a skull x-ray.
cool.

Yeah, I have a chest one too, but I thought that would be too risque for my blog.....
