    Doctor Unknowingly Saves His Own Life

    A doctor saves his own life, unknowingly, by volunteering to be a normal control subject for a new scanner.

    By the way, I know this man well. I worked with him at this hospital for nine years! I was pretty surprised to see his name in the article.

    Wow!

    I have known a few healthy people lately who have major blockages and few or no symptoms, and they found out by accident. It really makes you wonder if we should be doing stress tests younger. Or hoping for these scans to become safe and cheap (soon they'll be drive through! ).

    What a great story with a happy ending!
