Caption: Lumbar vertebral collapse. X-ray of a patient's lumbar spine, showing how reduction in bone density has caused the collapse of some of the vertebrae (vertebral body height loss). The collapse of a vertebra can be caused by conditions such as osteoporosis or bone cancer. For a view of the same patient's thoracic spine, see image C038/6661.
