Visualization of the air ejected from the temporary cavity in brain and tissue simulants during gunshot wounding.

Abstract

One hypothesis for the physical mechanism responsible for backspatter during cranial gunshot wounding is that air is ejected by the collapse of the temporary cavity formed around the bullet path. Using bovine and ovine heads and simulant materials, evidence of this ejection was sought by measuring the velocity of the air that was drawn in and ejected from… (More)
