Service Report:
5 pm: Surgical corridor: #MedicalPhysicist walking tired, heard happy whistle, turn and see O-arm smiling in the corner.

MP (smiling): O’ dude – How come you are so happy? BTW, how did it go with the service guys. Was your face all fixed up?

O-arm: Yep, doc. You didn’t notice that I am all fixed. I believe your word meant something to them. They handled me so soft and kind, it was like getting the boost recently (so smooth that I even asked the nurse if she really boosted me).
MP: I am glad you feel that way. I will come soon to check you out. Stretch will join me w Corgi to make sure all is well with you.

O-arm: Thank you, doc, I am so happy, I am taken care and checked by the best. That is why I feel to give all to our best surgeons.

MP (shocked & surprised): O’ what happened to your face? Were you in a brawl again? Didn’t I warn you not party late-night.

O-arm: Doc, wait a minute, listen to me doc, I am a docile guy, I don’t go to bars, except to that "Ministry of B" with Ur friend who drives car w a cute name ‘1HMRSI’

MP: Then, what happened to your face?

O-arm: Well yesterday surgeon doing spinal surgery called for me. Since I got an upgrade for 'long bone imaging', I was rushing. Elevator door struck my face.
You know doc, new elevator guys don’t have any respect. In fact, I put my face to protect a doc getting squashed

Real story re today's Physics Tip
MP: Walking w measuring devices

FL: Hey doc, what is “Air-KARMA”? I have heard ‘Good Karma’ or ‘Bad Karma’, & am sure U have lot of ‘Good Karma’, then why the new term ‘air-karma’?

MP (smiling): Dude, it's not “Air-Karma”, it's “Air- KERMA"

MP (smiling): It is “Air- KERMA (Kinetic Energy Released per Unit Mass)”. If u asked any of my residents, they would have told u.

Anyway, air-Kerma is measure of x-ray beam intensity measured using ion-chamber which aides to estimate patient risk.
@aapmstsc @aapmHQ

MP: In fact, I am here to measure the ‘air-kerma’ for your system.

FL: Thanks! then why “air-Kerma” is always expressed in “milli-Gray”?

MP: Generally, SI unit of air-Kerma is “Gray” named after a famous physicist Louis Harold Gray
