Fractured wrist, coloured frontal and profile X- rays. The head of the radius, the larger of the two arm bones, is fractured. The bone will be immobilised, either externally, using a cast, or internally, using metal pins, to allow it to heal. It is important that a bone is correctly aligned if it is to heal properly and avoid future complications.
