Diagnosing Art

Diagnosing art? The following article from the Wall Street Journal looks at a group of physicians who are doing just that!

A swollen knee, a lazy eye—the subjects of many great paintings present maladies that offer doctors a new perspective on crafting their diagnosing skills. Just one of the many ways the arts are being utilized to build a stronger, more productive workforce.
