Movement of steel-jacketed projectiles in biological tissue in the magnetic field of a 3-T magnetic resonance unit - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


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.

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.
