    in Self Help

    Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh will interview Dr. Paul Hsieh about "Radiology in Practice" on Thursday evening, 18 December 2014, at 6 pm PT / 7 MT / 8 CT / 9 ET on Philosophy in Action Radio.

Advanced medical imaging has revolutionized patient care in the past 25 years, allowing doctors to make diagnoses more accurately, quickly, and safely than ever before. Radiologist Paul Hsieh will discuss the basics of modern radiology (x-rays, MRI, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine), how these different tests work, what they show about the human body, and how they help doctors take better care of patients. 

    Dr. Paul Hsieh is a radiologist in practice in South Denver. He is the co-founder of Freedom and Individual Rights in Medicine (FIRM). He blogs offbeat tech news atGeekPress.

    Lets Talk Get Janes

    in Entertainment

    ZHuffington Post Columnist Rachel Thompson and Writer/critic Bennet Pomerantz discusses media topics with guests


     


    Tonight's guest is the creator of the Jane


     


    Sharon's own words "


    Janes patient examination gowns were born out of necessity. My Mother and two sisters are Breast Cancer Survivors, because of that family history, I often found myself in Breast Health Centers, Radiology Departments and Women’s Clinics being vigilant about testing and exams. During those times I would sit endlessly in an ill fitting, uncomfortable and very thin patient/hospital gown. The women around me were in the same situation...skinny girls were freezing and other women falling out the front of the gown, exposed and vulnerable. 


    I feel strongly that during these stressful times women have the right to be comfortable and more dignified. There had to be something better and I set out to develop it.


    In October of 2012 Janes were ordered by the Breast Health Center at Women and Infants Hospital. The patients loved them...I was so encouraged by the feedback. From that one Breast Health Center Janes began to sell throughout the country. All very exciting.


    Unfortunately, at that time I was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer. Following surgery, during chemotherapy and radiation my Jane was my best friend! I had not intended to become the “poster child” for Janes...I am here to say that Janes are comforting and make a difference in how I felt and how I was viewed. My Janes gave me confidence as well a secure feeling.


    My passion today is to get the word out to women everywhere that ‘it is okay to bring your own gown’, that women have the right to comfort and that there are alternatives out there to the traditional much lacking patient gown.
