Fractured tendon. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a fractured flexor tendon of the finger showing the collagen fibres. The parallel arrangement of the fibres make the tendon inelastic but flexible. Tendons attach muscle to bone. Magnification: x5000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
