Coloured X-ray (front view) of the shoulder of an 89 year old female patient, showing advanced arthritis of the shoulder joint (upper centre). Erosion of the cartilage around the head of the humerus (upper arm bone, top centre) decreases the joint space causing pain on movement; there is also bone demineralization of the humeral head.
