Have you ever been injured and had to go to the doctor’s office or hospital for x-rays? Aside from an occasional broken bone or tooth filling you see on these scans, the entire process may seem a bit uninteresting. However, there are many cases around the world of radiology images that are hard to believe. While some may make you cringe, almost all will leave you wondering just how the person got into the predicament in the first place.
For example, a two-year-old boy once shoved a chopstick up his nose, and CAT scans revealed that it had gone seven centimeters into his brain without damaging major nerves or arteries. In addition to children and infants accidentally ingesting something, there is also the cautionary tale of the 25-year-old man who swallowed a fork on a bet and, as a result, had it lodged in his esophagus.
Read for yourself about some of the more bizarre radiology images that professionals have dealt with — and consider yourself lucky to not be in a similar situation as the patients!
