Caption: Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) angiogram of a 53 year old man's cervical vertebrae (neck bones), showing fusion of the bones (side view). This is a result of osteoarthritis, a condition where the protective joint surfaces between bones wear down and cause painful friction. Here, the weakened bones have fused together. The left vertebral artery (red) can be seen running through the transverse foramina, which are holes in each vertebra allowing the artery to pass through.
