Non-displaced, incomplete fracture of distal third of left radius.
The rest of the bones on both sides are intact.
This fracture pattern is consistent with a "greenstick fracture", as their is disruption of the cortex on the outer (convex) side with only bowing of the inner (concave) side of the fracture. It is typically seen in children, whose bones can bend more before breaking.
