Hello everyone!

I was hoping some of photoshop pros might help me. I need to know whether this Xray is photoshopped, particularly the head. Might you be able to tell me?

My guess would be, someone was wearing a helmet. Hockey, football or some sort of helmet when this was taken.

What makes you think it's shopped?

I know nothing about scans, but I can see a slightly unusual background pattern, with two lighter areas at the top and bottom of the skull.

Google image search reveals other similar scan images with the same type of background patterns.

Medical images.

Looks pretty normal to me.

Don't try and be an image expert by judging a JPEG with lousy compression.

A helmet would stand out more. Maybe some cloth, or similar.

Hi this radiograph has a high exposure value so you cannot really make out the soft tissue (fat, muscle, skin) shadow, but otherwise looks fine. In an emergency setting they usually have head supports to immobilise the patient's head and the restraints/support can appear on the radiograph.

If you rotate the shot 90 degrees the lines and shaded areas become perfectly vertical - the subject is lying on their back with their head in a foam brace of some kind - no magic here
