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/orange) between vertebrae L3 and L4 (lower centre). This can cause severe pain and trouble walking, and may require surgery.
