MD Challenge

Code Blue Blog is putting the bucks on the line over the Schiavo case. You've heard all of these doctors involved in the case telling you what that infamous CT Scan shows - the problem is that none of them are radiologists. The challenge puts 100k to 125k up for grabs if these Schiavo "her brain is liquid" docs really know what they are talking about. Here's the challenge:
To prove my point I am offering $100,000 on a $25,000 wager for ANY neurologist (and $125,000 for any neurologist/bioethicist) involved in Terri Schiavo's case--including all the neurologists reviewed on television and in the newspapers who can accurately single out PVS patients from functioning patients with better than 60% accuracy on CT scans.

I will provide 100 single cuts from 100 different patient's brain CT's. All the neurologist has to do is say which ones represent patients with PVS and which do not.

If the neurologist can be right 6 out of 10 times he wins the $100,000.

Folks, he's being very generous at lowering the bar to 6/10 correct readings.

Do you think he'll have any takers? I bet not.
