A Pretty Interesting Day


Today in Imaging we got to take x-rays of a chicken!  It was pretty cool because I've never really interacted with chickens before.  I got to help carry it, restrain it for x-rays, and return it to its cage.  We also watched two different blood draws on the chicken, which was pretty interesting.  I find out that chickens get hematomas extremely easy, even with a perfect blood draw.

We also took some x-rays of one of the rats we have at school.  The rat was so chill that we literally used no restraint for the one x-ray, and hardly any for the second one.

We didn't do a whole lot else today, but it was fun.  I'll write more later :)
