Spinal Cord and Peripheral Nerves

The spinal cord extends just past the lowest rib, ending at the level of first lumbar vertebra. Below this, the spinal canal is filled with the cauda equina – “horse’s tail” of nerve roots. Reproduced from Atlas of Human Anatomy by Frank Netter, MD, with permission of Icon Learning Systems.
