When compared to chest radiographs, medical devices of the abdomen and pelvis are less frequently seen. However, with recent advances in technology the interpreting radiologists are seeing more medical objects on these radiographs. The identification of these devices and materials are crucial for not only enabling the radiologist to understand the underlying background pathology but also for evaluating any related complications. An online survey of literature showed our review article to be the most detailed, and in this first part of our two-part series we discuss about the various gastrointestinal and vascular devices and materials seen on abdominal and pelvic radiographs.
