Broken upper arm bone. Frontal X-ray of the fractured right humerus (upper arm bone) of an 85-year-old woman. The fracture is highlighted in colour at centre left. This is a traumatic fracture of the shaft (diaphysis) of the bone, with the fracture ends separated and displaced. The bone will need to be pinned back together, and the arm immobilised to allow healing to take place.
