Renal US shows 3 large echogenic structures with posterior acoustic shadowing in the right kidney consistent with renal stones. Stones shadow because most of the sound waves are reflected off of this calcified structure. This is an example of an artifact being useful in helping to make a diagnosis. What other artifact can be used to diagnose renal stones?

“While on the way to #Sicily, MSF emergency coordinator Will Turner distributes food rations to the people on the upper deck of the Phoenix, the rescue boat run by #MSF and @migrantoffshoreaidstation (MOAS). At about 9am on the 14th of May the #Phoenix team received a call from the #MRCC in Rome, informing them of a traditional wooden #fishing #boat estimated to be carrying 300 people in distress. By 11am the #rescue had began and it didn’t finish until nearly 6pm by which point 561 people had been rescued from the 18 metre boat. Of those people rescued, 154 men were immediately transferred onto an oil platform supply #ship, with the remaining 407 taken on board the Phoenix. The 407 on board the MY Phoenix included: 60 children (15 of which are under five), 136 women, 211 men. They are from seven different countries: 374 people from #Eritrea, 20 people from #Syria, eight people from #Ethiopia, two people from #Chad, one person from #Morocco, one person from #Sudan and one person from #Yemen.

“Las Vegas, NV | May 2, 2015

Las Vegas Blvd Walkscape.

More Walkscape images can be found on @conceptual_ben
In a nutshell this project is best described with the following statement.
We live in a time of radical documentation: Cameras are within easy reach and CCTVs record our every move. Our landscape and street corners are painstakingly documented.
Time and space are mere elements to be observed, recorded and stored away.
My response has been to deconstruct and compress all these elements into a kaleidoscope of overlapping imagery. Walkscapes presents both sides of our visual tendencies: the obsessive documentation of the quotidian and our growing need to retain a modicum of anonymity.
The images are made from 30-100 merged pictures taken as I walk down a city block. All are made “in-phone” at the moment of capture.

“RG @andrewquilty: Dr. Sebastiano Girmenia, a veteran surgeon who has worked in crisis zone trauma centres for more than twenty years presents two bullets extracted from separate patients at the Médicines Sans Frontières (@doctorswithoutborders) Kunduz Trauma Centre in northern Afghanistan. Girmenia explained some of the ballistic qualities and effects of the two bullets; both fired from Kalashnikovs and both Full Metal Jackets (FMJ) (ie. lead centred with a harder steel or alloy casing). The bullet on the left was removed from the soft tissue of its victim’s pelvis. The wound was small and clean and the slug remained in tact. The bullet on the right, dinted at the base, had entered a patient’s thigh midway through a longitudinal "wobble”, rotating and obliterating the patient’s femur. Girmenia went on to explain the bizarre logic of the law that came as a result of The Hague Convention of the late 19th Century regarding such ammunition; that non-FMJ bullets are illegal in warfare because they inflict significantly more destructive wounds than FMJs that cause what is considered reasonable injury. The reason being that non-FMJs become disfigured upon impact, creating massive internal trauma to their victims. Conversely, DMJ bullets are largely illegal for hunting purposes where the aim is presumably to kill rather than just to wound. If I’m off on any of this, perhaps @cjchivers can correct me???Andrew Quilty / Oculi. 19.5.2015. #Kunduz #Afghanistan #MSF #kalashnikov #AK-47" By doctorswithoutborders on Instagram.
