Inspiration vs. validation ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
validation: recognition or affirmation that a person or their feelings or opinions are valid or worthwhile.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
inspiration: the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
desire to be inspired but not validated to live the life that you desire to live for yourself⁣⁣
⁣⁣
live on purpose with purpose ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
making sure that what you do for yourself fulfills you and not other people 👑

X-rays, ultrasound, ct scans, and mris

not a week goes by in the hospital when i’m not ordering an imaging test of some kind.
x
talking to patients, performing a careful physical exam, and interpreting laboratory tests can go a long way in making a diagnosis. but there are certain situations where an imaging study can be extremely helpful. some examples include a chest x-ray to assist with diagnosing pneumonia, ct abdomen to investigate for diverticulitis, or an mri brain to evaluate for a posterior circulation stroke.

but there’s a catch. many of these tests involve a lot of radiation and intravenous contrast, both of which can be harmful if used inappropriately. for this reason, caution is needed to make sure imaging studies are ordered appropriately.

We have never sat and stared at a rock as long as we did this one. we pitched our tent directly behind where we are sitting in this photo. backcountry breakfasts and dinners accompanied by a dreamlike tranquility. cheers to morning coffee views ❤️
