Dr. Greg Rose has uncovered radiological proof that the Easter Bunny is more than a figment of the popular imagination.

Dr. Greg Rose has uncovered radiological proof that the Easter Bunny is more than a figment of the popular imagination.

Mr. Bunny appeared while Rose, a radiologist and CEO of NightRays, was performing early morning preliminary readings via teleradiology on Feb. 21 for Clear Lake Regional Medical Center in Webster, TX. The medium of choice for the appearance was a vascular ultrasound study performed on a 36-year-old woman who had recently given birth by caesarian section. She presented to the ER with bilateral extremity swelling.

Rose could have mistaken Mr. Bunny for a patent right common femoral vein, if he had not noticed his long ears and fluffy tail and the jelly bean in his mouth.

The study was negative for deep vein thrombosis. The patient stabilized in the ER. The woman was discharged. Mr. Bunny escaped further interrogation and was last seen hoppin' down the bunny trail.
