Actually, you don't have to answer that...

    I agree. Eyes are always scanning, but never review enitre report.
    I do the same thing. Then when the report is finished, I scan back through
    the whole report to make sure I didn't leave any stop code markers behind, and listen to each blank once again.
    Oh Lighten up, it IS funny...

    Can't we all just get along?    It's not like Dick Cheney is your dad or anything.... If they didn't set themselves up to be so perfect, it wouldn't be so funny when they are shown for the normal human beings that they are.

    ASR funny to lighten the mood...sm
    Must be the bitter winters. LOL


    Allergies/intolerances - sulfa and Minnesota. 

    Should be sulfa and Minocin. 

    Not so funny error on my own MRI report
    The MT apparently may have misunderstood the doctor when he dictated (English doc BTW) and typed "calcula" telangiectasia as opposed to capillary telangiectasia on the pons of the brain stem. This upset me a bit as I have some significant symptoms going on and my malformation is in a "high real estate area". I have had several MRIs in the past and they have been correct, except for minor typos (I know none of us are perfect). My real problem with this error is that it doesn't even make sense! Yes, the reports are being typed right at the local hospital. I have read several of my neurology reports also from the past that had many typos in them and it really makes you see just how important our job is, being accurate but also having a general knowledge of what you are typing about. When a new term phrase comes up, I take the time to check it out as many times I have found I have been wrong in what I thought it was and what was truly correct.
    this is amusing....
    My goodness, you are amusing. nm
    Quite amusing, since you work for two companies, you are
    Huh? Your logic is amusing. She deserves Americans looking for her?
    That's just not how its done, as the poster below for eloquently explains!
    Glad you liked. I found it pretty amusing myself.


    Pointing out minor errors is not amusing. It is simply rude.


    I am definitely gone from this site. It has totally gone to the dogs, literally, and other nonsense.
    Oh, Sheesh yourself!

    You just had to start that again, huh? Sheesh.

    Sheesh! I was just going to post an
    encouraging post to you, and then read the nasty QA comment. Thanks a lot! It is totally a misconception that QA are nasty - shame on you! I assure you, most of the snarky posters on this board are anything but professional MTs. But forget the encouragement - you just snarked me. Off to better things...
    Sheesh! We must be neighbors.
    Then why post at all? Sheesh! And yes, if
    you are an IC, you should have a contract. What about privacy laws? Liability? You should have all this clearly outlined in a contract for your benefit. You do have problems, but you just don't know it yet.
    Scan it in.

    Copy the pic.  When you go into word, just view "header/footer" and paste in the pic.  This has worked for me. 

    Sheesh. Don't know why I signed "OP"
    boy, aren't we full of ourselves! Sheesh! nm
    shows you how observant I am sometimes. sheesh.
    thanks for letting me know.
    Get over yourself, Grammar Police - sheesh!
    The self-righteousness of the Grammatically-Correct- Nazis out there is unbelievable. Most of us take a quick break from work, dash off a quick post on this forum, and then get back to work. Not only is there little time for proofreading on this board, but in this tiny little box it's nearly impossible. And well-written, effective communication doesn't necessarily have to be the King's English, either. (Read "Huckleberry Finn" someday.)

    We all understand that and get the gist of what is meant when someone types a post with misspelled word or a grammatical error in it. Usually those who feel they are above reproach when it comes to errors of any kind are..........MANAGEMENT.
    All she did was ask a legitimate question. Sheesh!
    You do not need the 1099. You just need to report the income. Report the company/person ...sm
    to the IRS for not sending out the 1099. 
    do paragraph, then scan over it
    I listen as I go along also.  It really gets to be quite easy.  To reread the report definitely would cost money.  I do a paragraph or so and as the doctor is shuffling papers or gathering his thoughts, not really dictating, I scan down the paragraph to make sure it is okay.
    chalasia scan
    achalasia cardia scan for gastroesophageal reflux disorder
    Just run a scan of the C drive with the AVG - sm
    it will scan everything and let you know if it finds anything. It automatically quantines them I believe so you should have any any problams in any case.
    Sheesh, you're too literal. No one said anything about a man to take care of you, just
    It was helpful for me, Sheesh. I've done the right thing and
    I sincerely hope that others will as well.

    It doesn't matter whether or not we agree but the language used and the intent demonstrated. That is what I was talking about.

    I fully realize that there will be people who cannot leave a good thing alone. I feel sorry for those individuals. They apparently have no peace, no satisfaction, and no friendliness in their lives. They only know how to destroy, or to attempt to.

    I'm going to demonstrate what I want back from others - positivity, compassion, forgiveness, tolerance - whether or not I receive that from you or anyone else. If you do not return to me the same as I have offered, then that is between you and your own soul. :)

    I appreciate your point of view; I just don't share it.

    I hope everyone has a good evening tonight and a productive day tomorrow! I can't believe summer is almost over with and school starts back soon. Rather funny to me, my son has griped all summer about nothing to do (despite a part-time job, camping trips, Disneyland trip, youth events, etc.) and now that school is coming back around he feels "stressed" because there's not enough time to do all he wants to do! Hahahaha
    Yeah, probably because that would be the SMART THING to do! Sheesh!
    I'll meet your Sheesh x10 and raise ya a
    I'd say a lecture on politeness is needed, if nothing else. Sheesh. nm
    executive body scan???
    Could this be correct?  Outcoming being discovery of gallstones.
    try googling "achalasia scan." nm
    it's true...go to MSNBC.COM and scan down. :-( nm


    Please help with PET scan on Word Board
    Scan through and hopefully catch mistakes as I go. sm
    That don't pay me enough this day and time to proof every single word I type. Take our wages minus IC expenses and we aren't making much. I look at it like you pay for what you get sometimes. Now that isn't to say I don't care about quality as I do. I just proof as I go and try my best to catch it and be accurate but I do have 15 yrs exp and can usually tell immediately if I have made a typo. I may get a he or she mixed up here and there but no major errors in the report.
    You have dragon scan your documents and -
    it picks up words it does not know and has you train them, and it also recognizes words that you use more than others.
    AVG free virus scan
    try an off-site, online scan
    Go to www.bitdefender.com and use their online scanning. It is very good. If you've got anything, it will get rid of it. Highly recommended.
    How to bill for HIDA scan?

    I know HIDA scans are nuke med but would they fall into the category of CT/MRI/PET or US/DEXA for billing purposes?

    I say CT/MRI/PET but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I charge the same amount for a "normal" report as for any other report.
    You still have to listen to the dictation and change anything that's different.  I had one woman try to pull this on me.  She'd dictate, "Just pull up my normal, but change this, change that, switch that around, move that, add this, delete that, and change the other."  Then she'd only want to pay me what equated to $.03 per line.  She wanted 1:1 on her dictation to transcription ratios.  I told her to take her cheap account down the road because I'm worth more than that.
    Sorry about typos, sheesh...been sick and today down for round 3 sm
    of cold, bronchitis and mild pneumonia. Every time I get better I start in from the beginning with this illness! This is why I have settled for a significantly lower line rate to go where there are affordable benefits like health insurance so I can treat these things instead of being sick for over a month now and can't afford to go to the doctor because I can't work at my usual level. Goodness me.
    Lighten up,
    Lighten up.
    I think you need to lighten up.
    They are just having fun and I did see posts where others were rude to them as well. I like to look at things from both angles.

    It's not intended for young ones.....it's funny to read, but who really goes to Wal mart and does this??? I think it hilareoud to read!! I would NEVER teach my son this!!


    This is the reason I don't like coming onto this site....toooo much b*!ching from people that can't keep their mouth shut! As a student and my teacher telling me to take a look on this site, I am ashamed by the way that you all are acting!!!!


    I will tell my teacher that I will never come here again due to this IMATURE actions!

    Lighten up. nm
    oh lighten up!

    Lighten up?
    My doctor, I would hope, is a professional and I would not appreciate him talking about me or my body while he is on the phone dictating.  Number one he was wrong in doing that and number two, the person who posted the information here was wrong.  We are making light of a woman's dilemma about her body.  I find it most distasteful and most likely breaking the rules of the hospital where he was dictating from.
