Next time you are playing ‘Indian’s and Cowboy’s’ it’s recommended to not use real arrows.
Eleven-year-old Chinese schoolboy Liu Cheong was close to death when a 16-inch arrow entered his head.
The arrow was reportedly shot by a friend.
The arrow entered his skull through the eye socket and lodged in the back of his head. Amazingly the boy was spared a fatal brain injury
With advances of medical imaging we can assess what is going on inside the body and this can help determine what further actions are needed.
This technology has saved millions of surgeries. Think about it, if you went to the doctors without medical imaging and told them your knee is sore, they may just tell you to rest. If you continued to go back complaining of a sore knee, this may have eventuated in surgery, cutting the knee open and looking for the cause and treating it.
Now days they would opt for an X-ray or MRI these provide detailed images of what is going on inside.
From here the doctors can determine the cause of the sore knee and plan appropriate actions to improve pain condition of the knee.
And if it’s a knee reconstruction they can perform this through “Key Hole’ surgery using an endoscope and cutting tools.
