Gunshot Wounds:

Three Main Components of Gunshot Wounds:

gunsshot woundCavitation: Shockwave behind bullet. Can be 10 times the diameter of the projectile. Permanent cavitation is the hole left by the bullet. Damage will depend on the elasticity of organ or tissue.

Fragmentation: Projectile fragments or secondary fragments such as bone create their own paths through flesh. This is a cause of tissue disruption with high velocity bullets.

Penetration: Flesh is destroyed or disrupted by the passing projectile.
