    Abstract

    Examination of gunshot wounds can frequently be obscured by dried blood and other extraneous artifacts. This note describes a method that involves irrigation of the wound with commercial hydrogen peroxide (3% by volume), which enhances the wound without altering the abrasion ring or powder residues.
