ABSTRACT
Provides information on a study that investigated the possibility of using a small permanent magnet and carpenter's magnetic stud-finder to locate the ends of ingested tubes and strings in the gastrointestinal tract without fluoroscopy. Discussion of gastric intubation; Explanation of the Einhorn string test; Results of the study.
