Remember that weird pelvic xray with the unidentifiable item on it last week? Click here to review it. Lots of interesting guesses came in on this one. Two people got close, but not close enough.
Here’s a picture of what we found when we logrolled the patient to examine the back. See if you can figure it out and leave a comment before I post the complete answer later this morning.
I’d like to thank everyone for their comments. An unregistered user just left a comment on a post on local wound exploration that I published 6 months ago. It poses a good question and I don’t want it to get lost in the archives. Click here to see the old post. I’m going to do a post next Wednesday entitled “The Art of Local Wound Exploration” that should answer everybody’s questions about this.
And so far, no one has figured out the weird pelvic xray below.
Here’s a perfect item for April Fool’s Day, although it is for real. The xray below was a pelvic image obtained during a trauma team activation. I’m not going to give you any more information than that.
You’ve got until Monday to figure out what’s doesn’t belong and give me an answer in the comments. I’ll post the full story and answer then.
