comment Multi-nucleated cells: advantages and examples?
@jello yes I realize that polymorphonuclear does not mean multiple nuclei, but 'mononuclear' does imply that 'ploynuclear' cells exist, and I am sure that muscle fibres do have multiple nuclei, because multiple cells fuse together. I'm interested to know the advantages of multiple nuclei, and what other cell types have it. Thanks

comment Ultrasound during pregnancy
@TobiasKienzler that really didn't twig when I first read it, but you are correct. The FDA just lumps it in with other medical imaging (under Radiation Emitting Products). Presumably the blurb was written by a web-developer rather than someone involved with ultrasound...
