Caption

Gunshot wound. Coloured X-ray of a gunshot wound to the hand of a 75-year-old male patient. Pellets (black) from a shotgun are embedded in the base of the index finger. The proximal phalanx (first bone of the finger) has been fractured (red) by the impact. Evidence of osteoarthritis is also seen in the joints of the fingers. Osteoarthritis causes degeneration of the cartilage that lines the joints, and formation of bony outgrowths. It occurs most commonly in the elderly and causes pain, swelling and joint stiffness.
