Caption: Hip fracture: X-ray image revealing a fracture of the neck of the right femur (left on image), commonly termed a fractured hip. The broken femur is highly visible; the two shards of broken bone appear completely separated. Elderly people are prone to such fractures, particularly women, in whom osteoporosis (loss of bone density) renders their bone brittle & vulnerable to fracture, possibly as a consequence of a fall.
