Lodox/Statscan is a new digital radiograph machine with low-dose radiation exposure. It provides rapid and whole-body scans. In multiple gunshot trauma, the conventional radiograph or computed tomography scan might be time consuming, and the resuscitation might be paused temporarily. We applied the Lodox/Statscan to search bullets within a short period, and the resuscitation was nonstop during imaging study. As a result, it serves as a valuable adjunct in providing rapid identification of metal projectiles in multiple gunshot wounds.
