Abstract

Retained foreign bodies in the abdomen and pelvis are an uncommon occurrence after surgical operations but have serious medicolegal implications. The radiologist plays an important role in suggesting the diagnosis of a retained foreign body. This article reviews the use of three-dimensional CT as a problem-solving tool in the identification, localization, and presurgical planning of retained surgical foreign bodies.
