Fractured arm. Coloured X-ray of the front view of a fractured upper arm bone (humerus). The fracture is at centre (red), half way down the bone. At upper right is the right side of the rib cage and at top is the shoulder, where the humerus articulates with the shoulder blade (scapula), in a ball and socket joint. The bone will be immobilised, either externally, using a cast, or internally, using metal pins, to allow it to heal.
