Pinned ankle fractures, X-ray Featured Print

Pinned ankle fractures, X-ray

Pinned ankle fracture. Coloured frontal X-rays of the ankle bones of a patient with an ankle fracture, before (left) and after (right) the fractures were pinned. The malleolus (bony projection at the end of a bone) of both lower leg bones have been fractured and then pinned back together. The fibula (left side of each X-ray) is the thinner of the two lower leg bones, and has had a plate as well as screws used to hold it together. The pins and plates hold the bone fragments in position while they heal. The tibia (right side of each X-ray) is the thicker of the two lower leg bones. The bones at bottom are part of the ankle bones. Staples are seen in the surrounding tissue at right, showing where the skin was stapled back together following the bone- pinning operation. This is the patient's right ankle

Salivary gland Featured Print

Salivary gland

Salivary gland. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a transverse freeze-fractured section through an acinus (large brown circle) in a salivary gland. The rest of the image comprises several other acini surrounding this acinus. Acini are the smallest unit of a gland. They comprise a circular cluster of cells that secrete fluid into a central duct (hole, centre) that leads to larger ducts. These acini are secreting granules (lumps, brown) of mucus, the natural lubricating fluid found in saliva. Each acini is circled by a layer of connective tissue (pink). Saliva is secreted into the mouth to aid digestion and the process of swallowing. Magnification: x1000 at 6x7cm size

Layers exposed at Polar Canyon Featured Print

Layers exposed at Polar Canyon

December 13, 2006 - Layers Exposed at Polar Canyon. This false-color subframe of an image from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows the north polar layered deposits at top and darker materials at bottom, exposed in a scarp at the head of Chasma Boreale, a large canyon eroded into the layered deposits.
The polar layered deposits appear red because of dust mixed within them, but are ice-rich as indicated by previous observations. Water ice in the layered deposits is probably responsible for the pattern of fractures seen near the top of the scarp. The darker material below the layered deposits may have been deposited as sand dunes, as indicated by the crossbedding (truncation of curved lines) seen near the middle of the scarp. It appears that brighter, ice-rich layers were deposited between the dark dunes in places. Exposures such as these are useful in understanding recent climate variations that are likely recorded in the polar layered deposits
