Foreign Body Removal

When an accident or injury results in a small foreign object becoming embedded in soft tissues of the body, such as a fragment of metal or glass in the arm, leg, or foot, it can sometimes be difficult for a doctor to find the object. Attempts to find an embedded object through surgical probing can be time-consuming and stressful for patients.

Medical imaging methods, especially ultrasound, can often make the process of finding a foreign object and identifying a safe extraction path much easier, enabling a radiologist in an outpatient setting to remove an object through a small incision.

If you experience an injury involving a small, embedded foreign object, your doctor may be able to make the removal process faster and easier by consulting first with an RMI radiologist before any surgery is attempted.
