Ever had an ultrasound on your heart?
It's very undignified — you have to spoon with a nurse while she jabs you in the boobs with a jelly-coated rod.
They let me watch the video of my heart beating, and it was disconcerting to realise that far from looking neat and mechanical like in a biology textbook diagram, it's a squishy and blobby mess, and it's that squishy and blobby mess that's keeping you alive.

I told my mum about the ignominy of the procedure and she said "Just wait until you have a mammogram".

Maybe your nurse was a sexy/pervy one..
I had a heart ultrasound, and the doc didn't lie down, they sat while I laid the other way. It's very wierd hearing and seeing your heart, though.

I had one
I could see the blood flow live. For me spooning with fit miss nursey was awesome
