Caption: Coloured Computed Tomography (CT) scan in axial section of the chest of a patient, showing the fracture of a thoracic vertebra (spinal bone T4, green, at lower centre) due to Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). The lung fields are black, the heart is at centre. LCH is a disorder of the immune system characterised by an increase in histiocytes and these cells cause bone damage. The bright area is from a PET scan highlighting this condition.
