Caption: Spinal collapse treatment. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan of a needle injecting acrylic bone cement (white) into a 48 year old's vertebra during vertebroplasty, a treatment for collapsed vertebrae. The cement will reinforce the bone and prevent any further damage. Spinal collapse can be caused by degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis or bone cancer.
