Caption: Fractured skull. Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan of the fractured skull of a 40-year-old man. The injury is due to an assault. There are multiple fractures. There are multiple depressed fractures, part of the skull has been pushed inwards and fragmented into small pieces. Depressed fractures are the result of a high- energy impact from a blunt object. In severe cases the fragments of bone may need to be surgically elevated to their correct positions. Direct brain damage and even death can result from such injuries.
