World's Weirdest X-Rays.

  karma level 73816

From broken bones to disease the X-Ray is one of the most useful medical advancements in history. But as these images show they can also reveal some of the most gruesome and bizarre results. Here, an X-ray shows the abdomen of a patient that has swallowed two forks, a ballpoint pen and a toothbrush. The items are located in the intestine

The comical yet disturbing results are taken from hospitals around the world and show how accidents come in all shapes and sizes. This X-ray shows a nail (upper centre) lodged in bones of the index and middle fingers of an adult male, having penetrated through the skin

A historical X-ray of the foot of a Boer War (1899-1902) soldier, showing a gunshot wound. A Mauser bullet has become lodged between the metatarsal bones of the big and second toes. The bullet has not broken any bones; but the end phalanges of the toes are deformed, perhaps from tight army boots and long marches. This radiograph was made by the soldier positioning his foot above a photographic plate, while an open electric discharge tube emitted the X-rays
