A case describing the use of a metal detector to locate a metallic foreign body swallowed by a prisoner. Initial work up included plain thoracic X-rays and a gastrografin swallow which were negative. A metal detector was used to confirm the presence of a metal body in the oesophagus which was verified by a barium swallow.
