Caption

Fractured vertebra. Coloured three-dimensional Computed Tomography (CT) scan showing a fractured vertebral bone of the spine (backbone), seen in side view. A wedge-shaped section of bone (lower centre) has broken away from the cylindrical body of one of the vertebrae. Fracture such as this may result from a direct blow to the spine, a fall from a height, or sudden twisting. The severity of the injury depends on whether the spinal cord that runs through the vertebrae is also damaged.
