Caption: Pinned foot. Coloured side view X-ray of the left foot of a female patient, showing screws placed throughout the toes. Pinning is a common solution to mending broken bones, as the pins immobilise the joints and bring the two ends of a fractured bone back together in alignment for healing. It is important that a bone is correctly aligned if it is to heal properly and avoid future complications. Screws (white, bottom) are seen inside a board or tile that the foot is standing on.
