Neck vertebrae extended, X-ray Featured Specialist Imaging Image

Neck vertebrae extended, X-ray

Bending of the neck. Coloured X-ray of a side view of the neck of a man showing extension of healthy cervical vertebrae (bones). The seven cervical neck vertebrae are the smallest, lightest vertebrae in the spine; they support the head and neck and allow the skull to turn and nod. Nodding occurs when an individual flexes and extends the neck. Flexion, a bending movement, occurs when the angle between the articulating cervical bones decreases and extension occurs when the angle between the cervical bones increases. This image may depict whiplash, the forcible sudden bending of the neck forwards and backwards which may cause neck injury. The hyoid bone of the neck is seen below the jawbone. See images P116/729-731 for flexing of the neck


Neck and shoulder arteries, X-ray Featured Specialist Imaging Image

Neck and shoulder arteries, X-ray

Neck and shoulder arteries. Coloured X-ray of the arteries (red) of a human neck and shoulder. The bones (purple) are also seen on the X-ray, aiding identification of the arteries. The ribs of the chest (across bottom) are seen from the front. The head (upper right) has been turned to one side to expose the right-hand side of the neck and its carotid arteries (internal and external). These bring oxygenated blood to the head. The right arm (centre left) has been raised to show how the subclavian artery passes under the collar bone (clavicle) and into the arm. The arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart (not seen). The arteries have been highlighted by arteriography: injecting them with a radio-opaque medium to absorb the X-rays


Lead ion collisions Featured Specialist Imaging Image

Lead ion collisions

Lead ion collisions. Particle tracks from the first lead ion collisions seen by the ALICE (a large ion collider experiment) detector at CERN (the European particle physics laboratory) near Geneva, Switzerland, on 7th November 2010. Each collision, produced after the ions had been accelerated to an energy of 287 TeV (tera electron volts) by the large hadron collider (LHC), leads to the production of thousands of subatomic particles. The tracks are colour-coded according to energy from low (blue) to high (red). Lead ion collisions are expected to produce quark-gluon plasma, a primordial state of matter thought to have been present in the Universe microseconds after the Big Bang
