Retained splinter Podiatrist calls and says maybe scar, not vessel. She stepped on a splinter and pulled it out but is convinced something is still in there. He said, I thought MRI would answer. I said usually it does ( I didnt want to blame but that history makes all the difference ). I should have said lets bring her back for a GRE sequence ( but we were looking for a mass at MRI ). Lets do ultrasound. Then she showed me and pushed on it and said See Im not crazy like all the doctors said I was. I said, Can I take a picture ? She works at a paint warehouse ( tell by the fingernail ) and she ran into a wooden pallet with a big splinter sticking out.
