The Most Bizarre X-Ray Pictures

YOU know those X-Rays of people who have been impaled on something hideous, or have had something unusual growing in them?

Well, here are the most memorable:
Shooting Pains

HOU Guoying, 65, of China, has a pain in her face. She has been complaining of an agonising headache.

Guoying has a bullet embedded near her right jaw and ear, having been accidentally shot with a pistol during the Cultural Revolution in 1967.

In 1978, an X-ray revealed the bullet in her head. She declined an opertion, fearing the poor medical facilties woudl get her before the bullet.

Ring Piece

A few days in the cells, a high fibre diet, and the ring appeared.
Hooper got 12 weeks chocky. And some lucky girl got a sh**y ring…


Chen Liu, who was also known as Anthony, had 30 nails gunned into his head. His body was found in Sydney.

Mr Liu was bound with electrical wires and an extension cord and then rolled in a domestic rug with the ends neatly tucked in, which was then tied with three pieces of wire.

“In 36 years of investigation, I’ve never come across a murder of this nature using a nail gun. May I say it’s a particularly brutal and vicious murder and we are seeking information from the public so we can bring this inquiry to a conclusion,” the head of the homicide squad, Geoff Beresford, said.

Concrete In Anus

A 20-year-old man presented to the emergency room complaining of rectal pain. A well-nourished, well-developed man without signs of intoxication was admitted in no apparent distress. Digital examination of the rectum revealed a stony hard mass. Abdominal plain films showed a vertically oriented, low-lying radiopaque object in the rectum. A spherical radiolucency was noted in the upper pole of the mass. A blood alcohol level was negative. No other drug testing was performed.

Upon further questioning, the patient said that approximately 4 hrs earlier he and his boyfriend had been “fooling around.” After stirring a batch of concrete mix, the patient laid on his back with his feet against the wall at a 45-degree angle while his boyfriend poured the mixture through a funnel into his rectum. After the concrete mass hardened, it became so painful that he sought medical care.

Under general anesthesia, the anus was dilated and two Foley catheters were inserted alongside the rectal mass to relieve suction. A concrete case of the rectum was delivered without incident. The rectal mucosa was intact with a hyperemic and edematous appearance.

The patient was kept overnight and discharged uneventfully the following morning. The attending physician recommended a psychiatric consultation, but the patient declined.

Chair leg

HERE’S an image of Shafique el-Fahkri, taken at the Royal Melbourne Hospital where team of five surgeons are preparing to remove a met framed chair leg from his face.

Operation over and Mr Fahkri spends a month in hospital. He now has 95 per cent of his sight back.

Says he:

“I feel all right at the moment, actually, but I am too weak for work.”

In Melbourne Magistrates Court, 20-year-old Liam Peart, pleads guilty to a charge of “negligently causing serious injury”.

Says Fahki:

“I forgive him, totally,” Mr Fahkri said.

The incident:

Mr Fahkri was injured after a brawl erupted outside the Metro nightclub in Bourke Street at 2.45am. About 45 minutes later, with isolated assault incidents continuing, Peart picked up a metal-framed chair as he ran towards the nightclub.

Senior Constable Sheers said Peart raised the chair above his head and threw it at Mr Fahkri, who tried to protect himself by raising his hands.

The leg of the chair penetrated Mr Fahkri’s left eye socket, moved his eyeball to the side and continued into his neck.
