Foot X-ray. Coloured X-ray of a foot seen in side view. Bones (coloured and grey) of the foot are visible. The ankle (centre left) is the joint at which the tibia (shin bone) meets the talus (top bone in the foot), and is separated by a pad of cartilage. From the talus extend several smaller bones, culminating in the phalanges (toes) at upper right. The foot serves as a support for the weight of the body, and also as a lever during walking and running.
