Does wood show up on x-rays?

Bella probably has a foreign body in her paw and we have tried to sort this out as non invasively as possible, but the next step is GA, surgical incision, exploration of area, and stitches.

I was wondering if an x-ray would accurately show the presence of a foreign body as small as a grass seed?

Re: Does wood show up on x-rays?

it really depends on the density of the object. The xrays bounce of hard things (ie bone)and goes through softer things (ie muscle). I would think it should show up a foreign object but really, your vet will know best.
