Humerus fracture X-Ray images

A few weeks ago I was able to break my Humerus and today I got the x-ray images on CD.

I'd say: Lance Armstrong, eat your heart out! :-)

I'm now a certified cyborg, with a titanium plate and lots of titanium screws. Why so many screws? Well, according to the doc, the head of the bone is more or less hollow, and to keep the plating fixed they need a lot more screws than usual. The screws are also all diverging/coverging to eachother.

Nice imagery though ;-)
