Ultrasonic imaging of gunshot wounds in pig limb

Q. Li, Deng, D., Tao, J., Wu, X., Yi, F., Wang, G., and Yang, F., Ultrasonic imaging of gunshot wounds in pig limb, vol. 14, pp. 4291-4302, 2015.

We investigated wound tract extension of traumatic gunshot wounds in limb soft tissues as well as wound tract sonographic features and change-patterns when the limb position was changed. The experimental animals included 8 healthy crossbred pigs in the Chengdu plain region. Chinese Type 53 Carbine was used to establish the gunshot wound model of porcine soft tissues. Gunshot-injured zones in the soft tissues were dynamically observed at different time points using ultrasonic technology.
