- •10–20% of GI foreign objects are removed endoscopically or surgically.
- •CT is the most useful imaging modality for locating foreign bodies.
- •Multiplanar reformats improve visualization of foreign bodies & surrounding tissues.
- •3D rendering can further improve identification of retained foreign bodies.
