Caption: Gunshot wound to head. Coloured computed tomogra- phy (CT) scan showing lead shots (blue spots) in the head as a result of a hunting accident. CT scans are made from multiple X-rays combined into a single image on a computer. They show a "slice" through the body at any chosen angle, revealing soft tissues like the brain as well as harder material like bones, teeth and bullets.
