Hi all! Got to chat (on messenger) with Manoj last night, pretty bright guy!
First off (wanted to ask him first), are the ultrasound pics, those are pretty awesome, lots of identifiers, even the valsava is shown. One needs to go to the originals though, they are HUGE pictures (but small file size), and very much worth a looksee!!!
Here's the link to SuperSize number 1: LINK
Also to number 2:
Secondly, it was helpful to understand how their system works differently from ours, insofar as MRI/MRV's going to CD is concerned! After discovering a few things from him, I now understand why those pics I posted of his MRV, looks so "washed out", and there is so much white showing, it makes it difficult to figure out what you are looking at!
See in India, it is common practice to hand the patient a CD, BUT, those CD's, instead of a standalone software, reader like Efilm Lite (like most of ours are in), they put a series of pictures, the entire MRV and UT, on one CD disk, as separate image files, which would be FINE, except, what those image files ARE, are compressed and basically squashed down versions of the originals, which come from NEGATIVES in the first place!
So they (beyond what they probably saw in the diagnostic center), hand the patient a cd, then the negs too, but the cd is just the negs, "sized to fit" as a normal CD is barely enough to hold that many images! So you squash them down smaller, but, that saturates the picture too! Too much info trying to jam into too few pixels, voila, white-out.
SO, what our good friend Manoj is going to attempt, is to possibly get regular pictures developed from those negatives that he has (they are about 1x2 inches each shot), THEN scan those, or have the negs scanned into workable, clean and viewable files. I think he would be better off getting full 4x6 pics or 5x7 developed from the negs, then scan them. It's pricey to say the least, but then possibly he can transit the pictures again and we'll get a crisper clearer view...
This is good though, all these unique situations are just adding to the knowledge base for the next person should they have a similiar situation.
