Subject: mesophytic a real word???
"The MRI, which I did review, confirms the presence of a 3.3 cm, right, lateral, mid to upper pole renal mass that is mesophytic in nature, extending into the sinus, and is consistent with a renal cell carcinoma."
Now...is mesophytic a real word in this context??? My Stedman's spell checker highlights it as not being a correctly spelled word. I wonder if the doc meant to say something else, or is this used correctly????

Subject: is 'neurospine'a real word?
I have need of your collective wisdom today.
I ran into a dictator fond of the word 'neurospine.' Where I am now they frown on slang, so I am trying to find out if this is a real word or a doctor-convenient contraction of some sort.
Thanks in advance for any assistance,

I was told by a former boss that it's not a real word....
Subject: I was told by a former boss that it's not a real word....
and she dinged me if I transcribed it. I searched Merriam Webster online and can't find it as a plural for decubitus. I still don't think it's a real word. Some employers want you to transcribe what the dictator says, whether it's a real word or not, and others don't want you transcribing doc speak when it's not a real word. To the original op, if this is a verbatim account, I'd transcribe decubiti, but if it's not, I'd transcribe decubitus ulcer(s). I'd probably go with the plural because I think they share MT50's belief that it's the plural of decubitus.

Subject: deloculate- is it a real word, or is there a better term I can use?
My account wants verbatim- unless they're making up their own words (Like pus-y should be purulent, etc.)

But I can't think of anything to replace deloculate...

What is the basis for any jealousy here? That concept baffles me. You obviously spent a lot of time into the events of today and I would suggest an alternate outlet...like a l-i-f-e. I do not always come here to flame or denigrate others. That you consider me trouble is of no consequence to me. I have no concern for how my posts are perceived and when I post, I'm usually my ADD and dyslexic self with multiple lines of thinking bouncing around in my head at the same time. I do not self check my grammar or spelling. I'm happy with my QA score of greater than 99.5% monthly because when I work, I allow no distractions. Before I was out of high school, I had the skill set I needed that today's poster lacked and that you commented on as a general rule for all newbies.
If you do not understand my point, that is your failing, not mine. Others have repeated my point so I hope it is a bit more clear to you by now. I will not "leave this newbie" alone (not that I now have a vendetta against her/him now) but you hold no power over my actions, just as I have none over yours. I feel no threat from you, do not feel diminished by you and feel sorry that you are so worked up over today's events.
I had no one to ask questions of at all when I entered MT as I came in as the MT supervisor with years of experience in being a records auditor. When I went home and entered the acute care arena, I had more books than I could count, with my favorite being "A Syllabus for the Surgeon's Secretary" (first published in the 50s). I didn't make a lot of money my first year at home but every report was superior to those of the other MTs on the account. I feel today's newbie has no excuse for not being able to find many of the answers to many of the issues that were addressed today other than by posting entire reports for strangers who may only think they are qualified to answer. Asking for QA help on entire reports is a crap shoot. On a forum where no one knows who anyone really is in real life, you can easily get crappy help anot not know the difference. Your mileage may vary.
I hope you find some peace and a healthy outlet for your frustrations.

how the client prefers. If you are being marked down for not putting them, then I would go ahead and add them if you cannot get an instructor to let you know one way or the other. Sometimes the docs do dictate vital signs separate from the PE, and unless you have been told to move them under the PE heading, then I would leave them as dictated.

X-rays showed evidence of s/l mi-___ (then he possibly says joint)arthritis involving predominantly the lateral and patellofemoral compartment. He has hardware in the lateral aspect of his tibia.
The s/l is really garbled, but I'm hoping someone can connect it with the context. This will be the only blank in the report, so not a big problem.....I'd just like to know, if possible. Thanks!!
