Wire piece on his back
This 41 year old construction worker came for his annual medical check up. CXR showed a 3cm long piece of linear metallic artifact in the right upper zone. He denied any knowledge of it. Physical examination was unhelpful too. The artifact was presumably a piece of wire that has accidentally got into the soft tissue of his back while at work.
