2008 is soon a wrap, and it’s time to update my list of the different diagnostic and cancer treatment videos I’ve filmed for the www.oncolex.no project over the last three and a half years.

I always thought the scene in the movie Master and Commander, where Dr. Stephen Maturin performs surgery to remove a bullet on himself, was a bit far-fetched. But it turns out that even in the field of self-surgery, reality surpasses fiction.

When you enter an operating room for the first time, you’re probably a bit worried about how you’re going to react to the visual impressions.The only reference most of us have is television. If it’s hospital drama or news footage, the surgery is always only hinted at. They show surgery without actually showing surgery. We get to see some bloody, gloved hands and some skin. The rest is left to Mr. Imagination, and as we know, he needs a reality check. « Read the rest of this entry »
