Fractured arm. Coloured X-ray of a fracture of the humerus (upper arm bone) in a 64-year-old patient. Fragments of bone (brown) are present around the site of the fracture (upper left). The patient has osteoporosis, a condition where bones become thinner, less dense, and more fragile. Osteoporosis increases the chance of fractures, especially of the wrist, hip and spine. It is four times more common in women than in men.
