Caption

Coloured X-ray (side view) of the spine of an adult patient, showing a metal plate screwed into vertebral bones (D8 and D10) to stabilize the spine. The spine has been weakened due to metastatic cancer (spread from the prostate gland) affecting the vertebral bone (D9, red, lower centre) between the pinned bones. This procedure of immobilizing the joints between bones is known as arthrodesis.
