Merry christmas and a happy new year to all the reader’s of The Sterile Eye. I haven’t found the time to post as much as previous years in 2012, but I hope I have brought you some things of interest.

One major event in 2012 was that all the cancer surgery videos I made for Oncolex finally became available in English. You can find them all here.

Norwegian Radio Interview

December 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

In February I was interviewed by a journalist from the NRK (the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) show Banden about my work.

We sat down and talked about some selected medical photos of mine and it turned out pretty good, I think. Now I’ve finally gotten my hands on the recording, for your (Norwegian) listening pleasure.

WordPress sent me a great review of The Sterile Eye stats for 2010. Here’s a summary:

Featured image

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 85,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 4 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 52 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 225 posts. There were 248 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 24mb. That’s about 5 pictures per week.
