Healthy spine. Coloured sagittal computed tomography (CT) scan of a healthy patient's spine. At top is the skull (orange), with the spinal column, made up of vertebrae (back bones) running from the base of the skull to the sacrum (sitting bone, bottom right). The spinous processes can be seen to the right of the spinal column. These help protect the spinal cord.
