Hey Dummy

They're not allowed to actually write "Hey Dummy, look here" on the x-ray report, but this is what the radiologists do when they want to make sure the idiots in the ER won't miss the key finding on a film (in this case, a bit of glass from an automobile window):

The wonders of digital radiography allow this to appear on my computer screen.  In the old days they did it with a grease pencil and a post-it note.
