10 Most Shocking X-Ray Photos

As part of the annual medical check-up, we usually have a compulsory X-Ray scanning. X-Ray scanning is a useful method to detect different kinds of abnormalities in the body. You can do X-Ray imaging on almost any part of the body-- head, arms, body, feet, thighs, and in Kim Kardashian's case, her butt and breasts. Sometimes, the images come out normal, bone fractures or fluid build-ups, but on some cases, there can be nails, keys, screwdrivers, bullets, cans and all other types of things imaginable.

Here are some of the world's most shocking X-Ray images that just seem impossible to be true. Most have a happy ending but some are not as lucky...

NAIL GUN GALORE

Imagine three inches long nails shot by a nail gun repeatedly until you die. That was what happened to the guy, Chen Liu, an Australian immigrant on student visa when he was murdered a couple of years ago. He was left to rot in a marsh in Sydney and was found almost a year later by some unfortunate kids. Who could do this? Nobody has been arrested yet and the case is still unresolved.

COKE BOTTLE STUCK IN ANUS

In a weird twist of fate, a 60-year-old man got the humiliation of his life when thieves raided his home, stole two of his buffaloes and shoved a Coca-Cola bottle up his arse. That's what he claimed when he went into Nishtar Hospital in Multan, Pakistan but who could ever make sure the story is true?

SURGICAL SCISSORS LEFT BY SURGEON

What could be the worst-case scenario in a surgery? Before, it was the possibility that the surgery is unsuccessful or that infection caught on and there's nothing else to be done. However, now, it is the one-in-a-million chance that the surgeon left his tools inside your body. That was what happened to the Australian Pat Skinner when she had an abdominal surgery in St. George's Hospital. She only discovered its presence almost two years later when the surgical scissors painfully protruded from her abdomen. She has filed a case against the surgeon.

KNIFE IN HEAD

This is the X-Ray photo released by the London police to ward off citizens from carrying knife in streets. This happened to this teenager who tried to help his two friends who were also stabbed in a robbery. A close to 10 percent of his brain was removed but he recovered and has gone back to college. The person who did this? A fellow teenager who has been convicted and sentenced on October 23, 2008. What is happening to children these days?

LIGHT BULB HUMI-ILLUMINATION

In a prison in Pakistan, this man, Fateh, woke up with this uneasy sensation and when X-Rayed, the doctors found this light bulb stuffed up his hole. The suspects? Either him or the other hundreds or so fellow in-mates...

DRILL BIT IN HEAD

In a freak accident, a construction worker named Ron Hunt, was impaled by this 18-inch long drill after he fell from a ladder and landed on the drill head first. He thought he was going to die but he was lucky he just lost an eye and no permanent damage was sustained. He did not have insurance coverage and relied heavily on fundraising to cover his medical and rehabilitation costs. Makes you want to think twice before grabbing on a tool...

CONDENSED MILK SEX TOY

How far would you go for sexual gratification? This guy was clearly out of his mind thinking he was very smart for thinking up this novel idea and ended up as a laughingstock because of it. Condensed milk? Come on! I just hope the can was not open or he would get botulism along with the bloat.

SMOKING GUN

Although that looks like a handgun, it is actually a lighter. The doctors, who wore bullet-proof vests while operating on this female inmate, also found a glass crack pipe and rubber tubing. How much stuff can one shove into one's vagina? A prison might not be the right place for this lady. She needs serious medical attention.

KEYS STUCK IN BABY'S HEAD

A baby in Kentucky accidentally stuck keys into his eye and into his brain after he fell into them. Fortunately, his eye was not damaged (thank golly!) and there was no permanent damage. This baby deserves to grow up normally and he thankfully got spared from losing his eyesight. Where were the parents when this happened?

BEST TOOTHPICK IN THE WORLD

What is the best toothpick in the world? Scissors! This Chinese man did not have any available toothpick around so he used this scissors instead. Apparently, there was a very funny joke and he accidentally swallowed it. It entered his esophagus and a 30-minute operation (without anesthetic) successfully removed the obstruction.

The strange things that happen in this world anymore. It really seems unbelievable that such things do happen, but the pictures prove it did . let's hope it doesn't happen to more people. thank you for showing us the x-rays.

How come the two from Pakistan are like 'oh I just had this weird feeling one morning and there was a light bulb in my arse', 'oh some thieves did it'. I guess if they were honest they'd end up with the death penalty. You wouldn't just wake up and not notice either of those going in!

Wow this hub is awesome! I feel very fortunate that nothing like this has happened to me. Humorous and shocking, voted up!

I WILL NEVER have anything near my mouth when laughing. I will NEVER fall asleep around anyone I don't trust. And I will NEVER work in construction. Although, I might use that first one as an idea for a novel.

Great hub! Not really sure if its more funny, scaring, disturbing, informative, or crazy weird - but its great. ;)

These pictures were incredibly disturbing, although I laughed at the condensed milk x-ray. Who on Earth would do such a thing? My mind is officially blown. Anyway, this hub was very interesting and well-done. Thanks for sharing.

The photos are shocking. Luckily, not all x ray technicians have to make these photos for the patient. Being an x ray tech is still a great career option. If you are curious of x ray duties, here is a good article http://www.ultrasoundtechniciancenter.org/related-...
