The strangest thing you've ever seen on an x-ray? - Page 3Register Today!
- Jun 14, '09 by AyrmanAnti-aircraft shell, 37 mm IIRC. Live round, too. You can look it up on the net. The guy had been using it for years to alleviate a dangling hemmorhoid, when his dog ran in on him and caused him to fall on it. End of story the shell was removed and deactivated, the offending dangly repaired and the now dewat shell returned to owner, who had saved it as a souvenir from his days as an ack-ack gunner on the British Isles during WWII.
I did not view the x-ray personally but it is available on the net as I say. Somethings are just too weird not to save for posterity.
- Jun 14, '09 by FuzzyI've seen a lot of weird things on x-rays. I'm not talking about abdomonal ones but many others as well. We have a good one of a horse that has a tree limb stuck right between his eyes. The limb was surgical removed and tha horse is doing fine. We have x-rays with some really neat bladder stones. Sometimes there is more stones than bladder. Dog that tried to jump over a fence and impaled herself on a t-post in the chest. Yes that one lived too. The post barely missed the heart. Then of course the standard "What did it eat that for?" x-rays. Don't pull the string out of the cats mouth as it really balls up the intestines which makes the vet use his cuss words more. If the object will fit in the ferrets mouth the ferret will swallow it. A bloodhound ate a 16 penny nail. I have no idea why. He must have been iron depleted. Removed some panties from a dog once. The husband squirmed. The wife was mad. They weren't hers.

He c/o was respiratory so we did a cxr, which showed bilateral nipple piercings. She said she figured she would just go "whole hog" after she got the implants.

She didn't believe him until she saw the x-ray! Fortunately, the crisis passed What's the funniest/strangest thing you've ever seen on an x-ray?
I saw that they were on the Ellen show. It was very funny.

- Jun 23, '09 by diawc13 yo boy who inserted a metal rod into his penis - didnt ask, but he ended up in surgery.
DD girl who swollowed staples one at a time - took us a while to figure that one out.
Had a cousin who worked on the West coast, he had a patient who "accidentally" sat on a jar of grey poupon. Yup surgery - but the funniest part was that his surgeons also lived in his subdivision. Can you imagine the summer block party? "Pardon me sure....can you pass the............."
