R.T. Burnsides Recognized
For Bladder Tumor Paper
For the second consecutive year the
Southeast Conference of Radiologic
Technologists has awarded Tom
Burnsides, R.T., first place for a scientific
paper. This year's was entitled "New
Concepts in Staging Bladder Tumors."
As the 1973-74 first-place winner of
the North Carolina Society of Radiologic
Technologists, Burnsides was eligible to
represent the state of North Carolina at
the Southeast Conference. At the January
meeting in Orlando, Fla., Burnsides
competed with other first-place winners
from Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina,
Georgia, Alabama and Florida.
Among the 247 people who attended
the conference, three others also were
from Duke. They are Cindi Kirby, R.T.,
assistant director of the Radiologic
Technology Program; Frances Apple,
R.T. in the Orthopaedic Clinic and newly
elected North Carolina representative to
the board of directors of the southeast
conference, serving a three-year term; and
Robert Burnsides, R.T., brother of the
Aside from the scientific award, North
Carolina also distinguished itself by tying
with Georgia for the attendance award -
each had 31 representatives. This award
was established last year at the
conference in Atlanta where North
Carolina won first place.
Burnsides' scientific paper describes a
procedure that more accurately stages
bladder tumors with information
obtained from radiographs.
"By injecting air into the bladder, air
into the peripheral space around the
bladder (to show the thickness of the
bladder wall itself), and performing a run
off of an arteriogram of the pelvis,"
Burnsides explained, "one can determine
to what extent a tumor has invaded the
bladder and other surrounding anatomical
areas of the pelvis."
A native of Spencer, N.C., Burnsides
joined the Duke staff in 1972. He spent
two years in x-ray training at Rowan
Memorial Hospital in Salisbury and from
1971-72 he took additional training in
special diagnostic radiologic procedure at
Bowman Gray School of Medicine in
Burnsides has recently entered his
award-winning paper into national
competition where it will be judged by
the American Society of Radiologic
Technologists. The results of the
competition will be announced in April
and the winners will present their papers
at the society's June meeting in

A YEAR OF 5f/?WCf—Roy N. Crenshaw displays a plaque presented to him when he
stepped down following a year's presidency of the Durham Merchants Association.
Crenshaw, director of the Surgical Private Diagnostic Clinic, headed the organization
during 1973 and capped his presidency with an association dinner at which CBS
Correspondent Charles Kuralt spoke. Crenshaw is another example of someone at
Duke, working with the community, for a closer relationship between Duke and
Durham. (Photo by David Williamson)

Gianturco said a highly "pressured

ambition, striving—was noted more
frequently in the patients with cerebral

patients with recurrent cerebral ischemia

controls—showed some degree of
"pressured" behavior, Gianturco said,
indicating that this type of personality is
widely prevalent in our competitive,
middle class society.
But most significant, he said, was that
78 per cent of the stroke patients who
had also suffered previous coronary heart
disease showed very high "pressured"
personality patterns. This was in contrast
to only about 33 per cent of the patients
and control subjects who had*not
suffered from heart disease.
The patients with coronary heart
disease preceding stroke had also
experienced more unpleasant emotional
states such as anger and anxiety than had
the controls and the stroke patients who
had no history of coronary disease.

MESSAGE WITH A P0//V7'-Dennis
Oehring, operations manager in the
Department of Environmental Services,
attaches to a wastebasket a sign with the
unmistakable message that needles are
not to be disposed of in trash containers.
Wards and other areas where needles are
used have special disposal boxes. The
move by the Medical Center Safety
Committee, of which Oehring is a
member, is part of a program to eliminate
injuries sustained by employees who are
stuck by improperly disposed of needles.
