Photograph - Photograph
Healing ankle fracture, coloured X-rays. The ankle is seen from the front at left and from the side at right. The break is at the bottom of the fibula (left in front view), the smaller of the two lower leg bones. It is seen as a pale line crossing the fibula near the ankle. The ankle joint is formed by the articulation of the tibia (shin bone), fibula and talus, the upper bone in the foot. This fracture has been set in a plaster cast to immobilise it, to allow it to heal in the correct position.
