Movement of steel-jacketed projectiles in biological tissue in the magnetic field of a 3-T magnetic resonance unit


Bolliger, Stephan A; Thali, Michael J; Gascho, Dominic; Poschmann, Sebastian A; Eggert, Sebastian (2017). Movement of steel-jacketed projectiles in biological tissue in the magnetic field of a 3-T magnetic resonance unit. International journal of legal medicine, 131(5):1363-1368.

Abstract

The fact that ferromagnetic bullets can move in air or gelatine when subjected to magnetic resonance (MR) units is well known. A previous study showed that the movement of 7.5-mm GP 11 Suisse bullets also depends on their orientation toward the gantry. In order to compare the movement in gelatine to that in real tissue, we decided to measure the movement of these bullets, as well as 9-mm Luger bullets, in the brain and liver.
