JP's technical editors really let her down on some basics...at one point when Willow is being x-rayed for Mom's diagnosed fracture of the humerus, she stops the doctor from x-raying the lower arm because there is nothing wrong with the "tibia" and "fibula"...sorry, folks, but those two bones are located in the lower leg. The whole point of the passage was to show how much the mother knows about the skeleton and how she surprised the doctor. Oops!

I agree with SaraLynn.
If there was proper research, the author would know that the tibia and fibula are in the lower leg, below the femur.
Also, physicians do not perform the imaging exams. That is why they pay Radiologic Technologists or Radiographers. We do those exams, not doctors or nurses.
Also, the proper terminology is NOT technician. The professional term is technologist, radiographer or sonographer.

I just read that passage about 4 times, trying to make sure I didnt miss anything! It was driving me nuts, there's no way they could have let a mistake that glaring get printed, so glad I'm not the only one that saw that!
