Caption: Slipped disc. Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan of the lumbar vertebrae (lower back bones) of a 43 year old man showing a herniated (slipped) intervertebral disc, frontal view. Intervertebral discs are shock-absorbing layers of cartilage and fluid between the vertebrae. This herniated disc is compressing the spinal cord (red) between vertebrae L3 and L4 (arrows). This can cause severe pain and trouble walking, and may require surgery.
