Localization and Retrieval of Bullets Under Surgical Guidance

Arch Surg. 1988;123(2):258. doi:10.1001/archsurg.1988.01400260146022

To the Editor.—Concerning the recent article by Yiengpruksawan et al,1 I suggest rewording the last paragraph as follows:

Perhaps the most common perceived disadvantage of surgery for the radiologist is the training involved in learning the technique. Such familiarization is neither prohibitively difficult nor time-consuming, however, and it can be accomplished relatively easily; a few training sessions with an experienced surgeon should convince the radiologist that surgery is a straightforward, simple technique with demonstrable advantages over the metal detector and much potential for broad clinical application. We therefore encourage radiologists to familiarize themselves with surgical techniques and use them as an adjunctive tool, especially in the interventional radiology room.
