Lumbar Epidural Injections and Surgical Hemilaminotomy and Discectomy - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit begins with one sagittal (side cut-away) view of the lumbar spine revealing the disc injuries primarily at the L4-5 level. This image shows the insertion of the spinal needle into the epidural space with injection of medication in this region in the initial attempts to control the pain.
