How can I find a website(s) depicting X-ray images showing abnormal
foreign bodies or obstructions?  For example, an x-ray image showing a
bullet lodged in the abdomen or an image showing an object that
someone swallowed or an image showing surgeon tools left inside of a
body after an operation.  The key is that the x-rays must have
something wrong with them--even a broken bone would be great.

I'm glad the link I provided met your needs so well.

I'm posting it here again to make for an official answer to your question:,GGLD:2003-43,GGLD:en&q=%28nail+OR+coin+OR+bullet+OR+forceps+OR+foreign+body+OR+object%29+x%2Dray

By the way, I used the following search terms at the Google Images site:

[ (nail OR coin OR bullet OR forceps OR foreign body OR object) x-ray ]

You can easily modify this to add or remove terms to look for other
images.  For instance, you can search on [ obstruction x-ray ], and
sure enough, some additional images pop up:

Let me know if you need any additional information.

Here is what I found, at the end I'll tell you how I found it:

Palestinian Killed By Bullet

Nail in Skull

Coin in throat

Wedding Ring, Thumbtack, Partial Dentures

Chicken bone

Sponge in pelvic area

Scissors in pelvic area

Screw in Skull

Spike in Skull

Medical xray library

I used google images for the following search terms:
xray bullet
xray foreign
xray skull
xray trauma
xray library

Thanks,thepresentoftime, it was amazing seeing all the objects found
in people's bodies.  I saw on local TV in Tyler, Tx where a huge hook
was imbedded in a man's skull (he was using the hook for some
equipment and it hit him in the head) but I couldn't find an image for
it. I remember swallowing a penny when I was a kid.  Wonder if it is
still there :)
