This week, stories from two Iraqi war veterans -- an amputee-turned-triathlete and a battlefield surgeon. Also, a breast imaging specialist objects to the federal mammogram guidelines; a physician with lupus seeks to raise awareness of the disease; and two clinical pharmacologists discuss how personalized medicine comes into play when determining if Plavix will be effective for a heart patient. Our "Checkup" considers the ill-effects of mouth breathing.
