Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

“MRI Protocols”

I just sent this to a client in Florida: 

I am happy the MRI Company serves good food… BUT…Below is what I DEMAND and they had best not miss the disc or catch the disc above or below… I am a total prick when it comes to getting 2 clean slices through every disc…or it has to be re-done… Please join me in being a prick !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
T1 Sagittal 3mm
T2 Sagittal 2.5mm
T2 Axial or gradient 2.5mm
STIR sagittal 2.5 mm

T1 Sagittal 3mm
T2 Sagittal 2.5mm
T2 Axial 2.5mm
STIR sagittal 2.5mm
T1 Sagittal 3mm
T2 Sagittal 3mm
T2 Axial 3mm
STIR Axial 3mm
Stacking Axial view 3mm
I welcome all of you in joining me in being totally obnoxious and demand nothing less than clinical excellence. The imaging companies understand this all too well and do not like, as a rule to be this thorough…Your patients, co-treating physicians and lawyers will… IF… you have the credentials behind you… then you are now on the track to becoming a super star!!!!
PS… I can’t help myself and apologize for offending anyone and everyone in this, every previous email/communication and every future one as well…
