Experience the 'City of Hope' with ICIM
ICIM
ICIM welcomes speaker Wes Shankland III, of the TMJ and Facial Pain Center in Columbus. While in graduate school, Dr. Shankland discovered three structures in the human body that were previously not described in the scientific literature. One structure, the zygomandibularis muscle, has been shown to be a major source of orofacial pain when its tendon is injured. His lecture "Orofacial Pain Disorders That Are Frequently Misdiagnosed" will help solve a mystery that can aid in diagnosis of pain.

By ICIM member Jorge Flechas: Autoimmune thyroiditis and iodine therapy
AARM
The incidence of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, also referred to as goitrous autoimmune thyroiditis, is estimated to be equivalent to that of Grave's disease. Although first discovered one hundred years ago, the pathophysiology of this disease has not yet been completely defined. Patients present with varying degrees of symptoms and may present euthyroid. Studies have found associations between genetic predisposition, environmental factors and co-occurrence of other autoimmune disorders within patients with autoimmune thyroiditis.

Fish Oil — Friend or Foe? Debate it in Dearborn


Chris Kresser: The definitive fish oil buyer's guide
So far in this series we've looked at why fish is superior to plant-based sources of omega-3. We've examined the importance of reducing consumption of omega-6 fats. We've considered how much omega-3 is needed to support health and treat disease. We've revealed that concerns about the safety of fish consumption have been overblown and that eating fish regularly is not only safe, but incredibly beneficial. And in the previous article we compared the benefits of eating fish to taking fish oil.

Bureaucracy consumes one-quarter of US hospitals' budgets, twice as much as other nations
Medical Xpress
A study of hospital administrative costs in eight nations published recently in the September issue of Health Affairs finds that hospital bureaucracy consumed 25.3 percent of hospital budgets in the U.S. in 2011, far more than in other nations. Administrative costs were lowest (about 12 percent) in Scotland and Canada, whose single-payer systems fund hospitals through global, lump-sum budgets, much as a fire department is funded in the U.S.

Interview with Susan Levin: The Silent Partner
When planning an interview, I assume that my questions are phrased correctly to elicit a meaningful response and I imagine that the work and life of the subject is covered well and the article complete. However, it never occurred to me that I was missing an essential part of my interviews with many famous medical professionals — this would be the silent partner whose omission renders many editorials incomplete.
