It's really easy to pause for 30 seconds, take a photo and 
keep on working.  The photos go directly into the pt chart.
It is really slick.

I thought that showing these type photos to patients after 
the procedure would be a good way of creating value after
the fact and having them go back and give a good report to 
the referring doc.  Thus I've been showing photos to the
patients.  I've found that some of the patients really like 
to see these photos, but some can be put off by it.
This gal uttered "yuk" about half way through this series.

BTW, I forgot to dry the mirror on that pre-op photo

Its funny. about 60-70 percent enjoy watching the procedure on the screen, the others look at me like Iíve got two heads when I suggest it. Different strokes I guess. Another nice one mark. No mb2? - gary Thanks, Gary. Check out slide 3. I have the 6 c-file in the mb2. By the time I worked it up to a 15 hand file, the mb2 was gone, merging into the mb1 - Mark Aha. A combo job. Less work that way - gary Yup, here's another one finished just now. As you can see from the angled post op rad I troughed a lot looking for the mb2 and never found a separate orifice. The end result is a sloping tear drop shaped single orifice. I think these photos are a bit underexposed. Still playing around with dual iris, shutter speed, ISO - Mark
