Hi,

Along with my recent skin biospy and various other tests, I was told to have medical photos taken (with my consent, of course ;)). I agreed :p

Anyway, just wondering - how many people here had to have medical photos taken? Is it 'standard procedure'?

Thanks,


Alex aka filmguy :blush:

Hello Alex
I suspect it is common at teaching hospitals and when there is something especially interesting but I have no idea if it is standard. I had a photographic record kept of my response to treatment by one dermatology specialist and agreed to have photos taken when I first started being treated at St Thomas' Hospital, London.

It does seem to go more with teaching hospitals. I had photos taken of the inside of my stomach and jejunum when I was endoscoped for coeliac disease many years ago and they have stayed in my file. It was rather interesting to see them and have the gastroenterologist actually explain exactly what was going on in them.
