I'm glad this Parker 51 appears to not have been injured in its accident! Who was the emergency physician who ordered the x-ray?

Or is this the results of your treatment?

Cool image!

Very cool, Prof!

Betty beat me to what I was going to say. Are we right?

DUDE! That's just cool!

What would be even more interesting (to me) is an x-ray with someone holding the pen as if they were writing.

Going to show this one to the wife & kids. Great idea bud.

That is just amazing, can't tell for sure but maybe an Aero "51" to add a bit more to the description?

I have no idea what it is but I reckon we need a full blood count, U&Es, possibly a viral screen and contact the next of kin - stat! Meanwhile, get him into resus and call the on call geriatric registrar...

Have we been watching a little too much ER? Grays Anatomy maybe? Dr. talk must be universal it sounded like you were speaking English there peachez :lol: You lost your accent for a moment. I was waiting for one of those Brit punctuations! Like "Get him on a trolley, and order a noggin scan. Post a bobbie to guard the (ooops)." :blink: I am having Austin Powers flash backs! :blush:

In an X-ray, radio-opaque things look dark, not light. In this picture, the radio-opaque things look dark, not light.

I can see the hood, nib, feed, and collector, but I cannot see the breather tube. Therefore, the breather tube is either missing, or else it is not radio-opaque. I believe that the breather tube is missing.

No breather tube means bad news... it shall die very fast (first symptom, ink turns blue from the usual red... and finally and premortem, into Noodlers black) unless Kevin performs a a sectionostomy at the emergency department... ¿got insurance?... B)

BTW, very nice picture...

Peachez wrote that she used to be a registered nurse. She might watch ER as well though.

Parker 51 Special with the breather tube was removed. This is a machine that has a great resolution capability (down to 1/20 of the diameter of human hair) but the sample size is limited (50mmx50mmx50mm), so the breather tube did not fit in the field of view. I will get back "soon" with more pictures.

DWL check here for a hand+pen x-ray.

Cutting the tine would be a tinotomy. Removal of the tine would be an tinectomy. Inflammation of the tine would be tinitis. :)

Is a tine transplant avoidable? If not, is a donor pen available?

Davyr,

You caught the real essence of this photo - the resolution.
It is a X-ray microCT system with a 10MP CCD camera.
Maximum resolution 1.5 micron pixel size, or 5 micron low contrast resolution :)
Unfortunately maximum specimen size is 50mm x 60mm x 60mm.
Full resolution of available space generates up to 50+ GB data per specimen :)
CT photos coming :)9

Sorry for bubbling in geekish...
