This image demonstrates the cauda equina or 'horse's tail' as it travels down the spinal canal. Note how individual nerve roots are parallel to their counterparts and exit the spine at different levels. The bone structures are clear to highlight the nerve root pathways. To the left of the image the end of the spinal cord can be visualized while to the right the lower sacrum is seen.
