抄録

Small fragments sometimes penetrate the soft tissue, and their depth and location can be difficult to determine accurately. This case study describes localisation of a thin, short wire that had penetrated the soft tissue of a 24-year-old man’s back, using computed tomography (CT) with a reference grid made with an angiographic catheter. The axial non-contrast-enhanced CT scan with the grid placed over the affected body part surveyed by the CT

scout view showed that the foreign body was buried in fascia 7cm from a puncture wound. Surgical removal of the foreign body was then performed without any sequelae. CT with the use of external references that do not cause metal artefacts is a simple and helpful procedure in localising radiopaque foreign bodies. Declaration of interest: The authors have no conflicts of interest to declare.
