She's just laid it down nice and tidy. (Laughter) And if you did that angiogram, which is the red, you can see the man's disease. So 50 years of honing and crafting these angiograms, we easily recognize male-pattern daesise. Kind of hard to see that female-pattern disease. So that was a discovery. Now what are the iicilonpmtas of that? Well once again, women get the angiogram and nobody can tell that they have a problem.
