Medicine 2.0 hosted by Digital Pathology Blog

| April 13, 2008

It’s a great pleasure for me to host Medicine 2.0, the blog carnival of web 2.0 and medicine. We, medical bloggers, try to write more and more about web 2.0’s impact on medicine and healthcare. med320.jpg

My thanks to Berci Mesko for the invitation to participate in the growing body of information combining web 2.0 and medicine.  For those who are not familiar with Berci’s several blogs at, they are a must read.  There are several pertinent items posted on digital pathology which I referenced here previously. 

For an overview on Medicine 2.0, check out this slideshow.

Thank you to all the contributors.Mousestetho50

Bertalan Meskó has added a search engine to his ScienceRoll site. You can search ClinicalTrials, DrugInfo, eMedicine, Medscape, PubMed Central, WebMD, etc. – all at once, or selectively. The search results are catagorized, so you can see the "clumps" of search results, and choose among them.  The Daily Scan has registered and forwarded it to Bertalan’s search engine.

    What is your position concerning a patient’s right to have her cytology slides reviewd by a board certified pathologist of her own choosing, when that pathologist does not work in the hospital where the slides were produced and are located?
    The situation I have in mind is: a patient has requested the hospital to permit Dr. “A” (a licensed physician, board certified in anatomic pathology) to review her slides. Dr. “B”, chief of pathology in the hospital refuses to permit this because Dr. “A” is not currently working in a CLIA Certified laboratory.
    Has anyone ever heard of this?!?
