Post your medical questions here. We've all been there. You think you know what you're doing after so many years of reporting, and then - blammo - up comes a medical word you've never heard of. Happens to me more than I'd like to admit.
Need help with a medical word. I can't figure out the spelling. it has something to do with urology since the depo was of a urologist (and he had a very strong accent :O). Anyway, here's the way it was used:
Q. But you've also testified that they could represent "Fleebalits"?
A. Correct. It is also possible it could be vascular calcification, "Fleegalits", lymph node
calcification, calculus of the ureters, all that could be present in this picture.
I can't put my finger on the exact pronunciation, but they both seem to pronounce it differently. It's either "FLEE-ba-LANCE" "Flee-GA-lance" or "FLEE-ba-LITS". HELP!
Aw, you're sweet. But it's Google that's awesome. I just Googled all the other medical words in the sentence, and I saw "phleboliths" in one of the results. How did we ever do it before without the Internet?
