This specialty requires a four-year residency in obstetrics and gynecology purchase 1mg finax. Subspecialties of OB/GYN include maternal-fetal medicine generic finax 1 mg with visa, which deals with high-risk patients; reproductive endocrinology cheap finax 1mg on-line, which deals with infertility; and gynecologic oncol- ogy buy finax 1mg low price, which deals with cancers of the reproductive system proven finax 1mg. Anesthesiology The American Board of Anesthesiology defines anesthesia as a spe- cialty that deals with pain management during and after surgery; cardiac and respiratory resuscitation; application of specific meth- ods of inhalation therapy; and clinical management of various fluid, electrolyte, and metabolic disturbances. In lay terms, the anesthesiologist manages pain during surgical, obstetrical, and some medical procedures and provides life support under the stress of anesthesia and surgery. Anesthesiologists must have a vast knowledge of physiology and pharmacology. If they are the only anesthesiologist on call at a busy hospi- tal, they can have long hours in surgery. This is not a specialty that features close, continuing relationships with patients. Most of an anesthesiologist’s contact with patients comes presurgically to evaluate the patient, describe the procedure, and help manage anxiety. The surgical procedures that they participate in range from the very routine, like tonsillectomies, to the very complicated, like open-heart surgery. The unpredictability of the circumstances makes this a high- pressure field. Income ranges from $242,900 to $334,000 and lia- bility premiums can be high. In 2002 there were 4,578 residents in 132 accredited training programs for anesthesiologists. A four-year residency is required for those who spe- cialize in anesthesiology. It grew out of the fields of radiology, internal medicine, and pathology. For many years x-rays were the only way to see images inside a person’s body. Today there are MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and PET (positron emission tomography), to Other Specialties 71 name just two new technologies. These approaches to diagnosis are opening new vistas in the study of human disease. The word nuclear applied in this way refers to employing the nuclear proper- ties of radioactive and stable nuclides in diagnosis, therapy, and research. The Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Orga- nizations (JCAHO) has stipulated that all hospitals with 300 beds or more should provide nuclear medicine services under the super- vision of a qualified nuclear medicine specialist. These procedures are no longer the province only of academic teaching centers. Per- sons entering this specialty should be prepared for a rapidly evolv- ing field and should thrive on problem solving. High-tech equipment is at the core of the nuclear physician’s spe- cialty. Therefore, very few nuclear physicians are in private practice because the cost of such equipment is prohibitive. As a result, they are somewhat constrained by the hospital administration’s willingness or ability to keep a department of nuclear medicine up-to-date. It is frequently easier to secure a job after residency with the addition of training in radiology. Patient involvement is often lim- ited, so those desiring long-term relationships with patients will not be satisfied with this field. Common conditions that nuclear physi- cians encounter include thyroid disease, cardiovascular disease, bone pain, and cancer. Specialists in this field have flexible hours and a high level of autonomy. Many enjoy the scientific precision with which they can diagnose an illness. Since they diagnose diseases from across the spectrum, there is a high degree of interaction with physicians from other specialties.

Often the apophyseal cartilage of the base of the 5th metatarsal or the accessory os vesalianum is confused with an avulsion fracture of the short peroneal tendon. The distinction is simple: The 3 physeal plate always runs longitudinally in contrast with the transverse fracture line. Furthermore, aseptic necrosis of the navicular bone and the 2nd metatarsal head (Köhler’s and Freiberg’s diseases respectively) or irregularities of the calcaneal apophysis can be confused with fractures or posttraumatic states.
