Taking the Fear out of Scary Medical Tests
It's hard enough to know that you or a loved one are facing a medical crisis. Suffering through medical test after medical test just adds to the misery. The machines look BIG, spooky and confusing. Some of them hurt! You start wondering if anyone cares that all that stuff scares you out of your wits! If you're like me, you've asked out loud "Why doesn't somebody invent something easier for patients to use?" You wish for something that is nicer to touch, nice to look at and nicer to feel as your medical team tries to find out how you're doing.
The good news is that some doctors realize how frightened we are of gadgets that whirr, blink, creak, draw, squish your tender parts, and go beep-beeeeeep-beep. They're patiently explaining the mysteries of their machines to people who need them for diagnostic and healing purposes. Share this message with your medical practitioners if you wish. It definitely won't hurt to try!

The Washington Post newspaper recently updated its readers about a marvelous, patient-friendly way to decide if some medical tests are or are not in your best interests. See http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/10/19/AR2007101902620_pf.html
