As of 2010, this is the last theatrically released movie that was fully composed by Clint Eastwood's longtime collaborating composer Lennie Niehaus (a relationship which started from Tightrope (1984)). Clint's later movies were composed by Kyle Eastwood and Michael Stevens (Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), Gran Torino (2008), Invictus (2009)), and even Clint himself (Mystic River (2003), Million Dollar Baby (2004), Flags of Our Fathers (2006), Changeling (2008), and Hereafter (2010)). Since this movie, Niehaus has conducted and orchestrated all but the latest two of Clint's movies, Invictus (2009) and Hereafter (2010) (which were conducted and orchestrated by Roger Kellaway and Ashley Irwin, respectively).
Okay, listen. Whatever happens, it'll be his face on the front page.
When Dr. Fox is doing her blood work on Terry, an x-ray is used whilst performing the biopsy. Both times, neither she nor anyone around are wearing protective lead garments against radiation exposure, which is a standard practice in any medical establishment. In addition, an endomyocardial biopsy, as it is called, is not preformed in a medical office as shown in the movie. It is performed in a cardiac cath lab, which is effectively, an operating room. All personnel are in scrubs and a sterile field is required. Lead is worn underneath the surgical gowns. From an outside perspective, it may not be readily apparent that the staff in a cath lab are wearing lead IF they are wearing surgical gowns appropriately.
