Caption

Spinal column anatomy. Artwork of a lateral (side) view of three thoracic vertebrae and part of two ribs. Vertebrae are the blocks of bone that together form the vertebral column or backbone. The protruding bony processes (left) at the rear of the body are the attachment point for back muscles and ligaments. Cartilage (blue) shows where each vertebra articulates with adjacent ribs and vertebrae. Radiate ligaments (green) join the head of the ribs to the vertebra and the intervertebral discs (green-blue). Costotransverse ligaments (white) join each rib to the process on the adjacent vertebra above them on the vertebral column.
