Q. Atkins diet? Is it good as it sounds? I'm 17..about 5'2 145 lbs.. I need to lose as much weight as possible in 3 weeks ..Anyone know what kind of results i can expect on atkins?

A. I originally did Atkins 4 years ago. I lost 30 lbs in 3 months and kept if off about a year. I gradually started cheating more and more and exercising less, until now it's all back. Atkins works for me because I naturally crave protein. I am ok with eating lots of eggs. But, the weight only comes off if exercise is included in the plan.

Q. what kind of uses the medicine do with computers related to ultra sound? how does the computer helps the doctors in the ultra sound? what do the compuers use for?

A. the computers help the doctors (in ultrasound cases) to interpret/convert the ultrasound waves into a specific imaging showed in the monitor. by that a doctor can find what is normal or not inside the patient's body.
for pregnancy purposes, it really helps patient in antenatal screening to find some abnormalities (if there's any) and to monitor the fetus' development along the 9-months pregnancy.
