29. If you can make an anatomical diagnosis from this pixelated garbage....

Then more power to you. You can't tell WHERE his thumb is in reference to his carpals. Nice posturing though doc.

Here's my diagnosis: Open up your right palm down with all your fingers together pointing out and your thumb pointing to your left. Rotate your hand so that your thumb is pointing straight up in the air. NOw clench your fist, thumb still sticking in the air. See how your fingers curl under and into your palm. THAT'S WHAT YOU SEE. The thumb is sticking up, just like it normally does. It's not MEDIAL to anything. It's just the way the camera is looking at it. If you still don't think so.........squint your eyes. Voila.

Now, doctor, try to make the same gesture with your middle finger. Notice how you have to point your elbow OUT in order to get the correct angle? He's not doing that. Notice how much bigger the width of the top of your hand it when it's facing you? His is not. NOtice how you SEE your thumb on the left side even though your middle finger is the one extended? His is not. Notice how long your middle finger is? His is not.

You have your diagnosis. I have mine. With a pixelated image like this anatomy means about as much as magic. Or did you help Frist diagnose Schiavo from his video too?
