Caption: Diseased spine. Coloured X-ray of the thoracic spine of a patient with arthrosis and osteophytosis. The vertebrae have become compacted due to arthrosis, a degenerative joint disease. It damages the cartilage between the vertebrae, moving them closer together. The grey mass (lower centre) is new bone growth, or osteophytosis, and limits the flexibility and movement of the spine. The thoracic vertebrae are found in the centre of the spine, between the vertebrae of the neck and the lower back.
