Presenters: Todd Raine
Institution: University of British Columbia
This presentation was given at Richmond General Hospital Education Rounds on 24 Jan, 2014. Thanks to Dr Dean Smith for inviting me to present. Unfortunately the Screencast of the presentation did not function properly, so there is no recording available.
Below is a list of links to sites and tools I talked about, along with some supplementary material. Questions from the rounds I was unable to answer fully, I will make an attempt to answer here.
