I was browsing the net and came across this rather nice picture of a stethoscope. I like the way it appears to be disintegrating, yet is laid upon a stainless steel slab, almost like part of an autopsy or crime scene.

For me it represents the death of a doctor, with a loss of identity, as well as symbolising the shortcomings of clinical judgement, in cases of misdiagnosis.
