Healed arm bone fracture, X-rays. This is a healed fracture of the radius, one of the two bones of the lower arm, seen from two different angles. The radius is the bone at left in the left-hand X-ray, and at right in the right-hand X-ray. The other lower arm bone is the ulna. The healed break is clearly seen in the right-hand X-ray. X-rays are used to check that the bone has healed properly. A cast was used to keep the bone in the correct alignment as it healed. This X-ray was taken after 9 months of healing. Partial healing, after 6.5 months, can be seen in M330/1767.
