Bolliger, Stephan A; Ampanozi, Garyfalia; Kneubuehl, Beat P; Thali, Michael J (2014). Gunshot to the pelvis – experimental ballistics and forensic radiology. Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging, 2(1):17-19.

Abstract

The 9 mm Luger full metal jacket and 44 Rem. Mag. semi-jacketed hollow point were fired at a body model consisting of a polyurethane pelvis with gelatine prior to multislice computed tomography (MSCT) and the results compared to those obtained by dissection of the model.
Our results showed that MSCT proved to be highly reliable in the demonstration of the damage to the model.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
