Polydactyly Left Hand[edit]

X-ray of polydactylic left hand
a Wikipedia:Featured picture

High-quality X-ray, clearly illustrates the topic polydactyly. Also makes me think, "you have six fingers on your right hand; someone was looking for you..." grendel|khan 22:33, 2004 Dec 25 (UTC)

  • Comment. Does the patient need to have given permission for the use of an x-ray of his hand even if the doctor owns the image? Enochlau 00:51, 26 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • I think the law says that they must be asked if their face or another identifying feature is shown. I have a dentist fried who only asks his patience for permission to use photos if their whole face is shown (when he gives presentations) not just their teeth. BrokenSegue
      • That's my understanding as well; I believe that so long as there's no identifying information included, the patient's clinical data can be distributed. grendel|khan 06:51, 2004 Dec 26 (UTC)
        • In that case, support. 03:31, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Would anyone mind if I photoshopped out the LRP in the top left of the picture? I find it distracting and unnecessary. →Raul654 02:49, Dec 26, 2004 (UTC)
    • I don't trust enough in my photoshop skills to do that; if you can make it look convincing, then by all means, go ahead. (If you do one, could you please also do the three other images on polydactyly?) grendel|khan 06:51, 2004 Dec 26 (UTC)
  • This image looks very srange to me (besides the polydactyly obviously!)(though, I am definitely not a doctor familliar with the latest x-ray quality so....). Has this image been digitally altered? Why is the skin so clearly visible? I can even see folds in the skin near the thumb and details of the fingernail! Bizarre and reminiscint of images produced using backscatter X-ray imaging. Can you say something about the device used to produce the image? --Deglr6328 05:17, 26 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • I believe the X-ray machine used to do this uses an electronic sensor instead of film to capture the image; the pictures come back from the radiology department on CD in DICOM format without ever having been on film. The only digital alteration I performed was an auto-levels adjustment to brighten it up a bit. I don't think these are backscattering X-rays or anything funky like that, but I can't be absolutely certain. Drgnu23 would know. grendel|khan 06:51, 2004 Dec 26 (UTC)
