Image of the Week: Tongues

You must see this! Really. You must!
I’ve spent the last couple of evenings meandering around the absolute treasure trove of historical images over at Wellcome. There’s an abundance of Eastern and Western “medical” images, and it’s all so interesting and awe-inspiring. Some are laugh-out-loud funny.
And in case you were wondering, yes, we still practice the art and science of tongue diagnosis. It’s a useful addition to the picture we build when we’re assessing a patient’s condition, and monitoring progress as we go along.
