Caption: Broken arm. X-ray of the wrist of a 76-year-old female patient, showing a fractured radius caused by a fall. The fracture is located on the right side of the base of the head of the radius (the larger of the two bones in the forearm), just below the wrist (centre right). This sort of fracture is common in the elderly, whose bones may have been weakened by osteoporosis. They may also be more prone to falling, and the extension of a hand to lessen the impact often results in a broken wrist. Treatment may involve the repositioning of the bones followed by immobilisation in a cast.
