    Anyone else ever use a pointer to find metal in their own body?

    So I've had a number of surgeries and have surgical titanium in my lumbar, ankle, and neck. It never sets off any metal detectors at airports, in the museums in DC (I live in the area), or anywhere else for that matter. This morning, on a whim, I used my Pro-Pointer AT and it hit on all the areas where I have the surgical titanium and a small gold fiducial (marker) that was hammered into one of my thoracic vertebrae so the doc could find the right spot. Weird and cool!
