Image of the Week: Regina Holliday’s Medicine X (redux)

Earlier this year, my colleague Marissa Fessenden wrote about this painting, "Stanford Medicine X," by artist and patient advocate Regina Holliday. But, as it turned out, Larry Chu, MD, the executive director of Stanford Medicine X, thought the scan of the painting could be improved, so Chu sent the painting off to another shop for a second scan. The improvement is so dramatic that I'm featuring the painting again this week. Take a look at this scan and then look back at the earlier post. It's almost a different painting.

The first-ever Medicine X conference will take place this Sept. 28-30 on the Stanford campus. Regular registration ends Aug. 1.
