Lumbar Spine X-Ray L4 L5 S1

An x-ray of a human lumbar spine. This view shows the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae, as well as part of the sacrum, and the bottom half of the third lumbar vertebrae.


Chiropractors, radiologists, and other healthcare professionals will sometimes look at the same films differently. Besides the penciled in numbers 3, 4 and 5, what do you see?


Not a bad photograph for something being taken with my iPhone. I'm finding that converting x-ray photos to black and white help show better contrast. Will probably automate some sort of batch process for films I am using in posts and photo sets.
