Caption

Bone screw. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a screw used in orthopaedic surgery to set the vertebrae of the spinal column. Surgeons may use implants, such as screws, pins, nails, bolts and nuts, to hold broken bones together until the fragments have fused. The screw has been designed to withstand the large stresses that it will be put under once it has been implanted. Magnification: x25 at 6x6cm size.
