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 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.
