composite person, terror attack injuries
terror victm, watch in neck
Subtraction image of terror victim

These two images were made by superimposing two separate images showing the head and the neck of the victim with the watch in her neck. (See I Was Riding The Bus) . The original image was a standard x-ray.  A second image of the same area was made after marking dyes had been injected into the patient. The dyes are used to highlight arterial damage by showing arterial bleeding. Here the dyes show damage to the common carotid artery. These specific images are the third in the series and were made by superimposing the other two. This technique causes some information to be masked out and the resulting images are called subtraction images. They help physicians to get a clearer understanding of the damage to the blood vessels. (Front view and side view) Note the ghost image of the watch in each view.

Bone with hex nut

Duratrans 50x40"

This X-Ray was necessary because a hex nut from a bomb tore into the calf bone of a civilian.  We don't know if the victim is Jewish, Muslim, Christian or a member of some other faith, nor do we know the victim's age, gender or socio-economic status.  We don't know how the victim happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
