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.
