This color enhanced sagittal CT reconstruction from a lumbar discogram demonstrates degenerative discs at L4-5 and L3-4. Along the anterior-superior corner of the L3 vertebral body there is a small bony fragment which has been seperated from the main body of L3 secondary to a herniation of the L3-4 disc (green) into this corner of the L3 body. This is called a ''Limbus'' vertebrae. The other injected lumbar discs are red.
