Paper Abstract

Precise three dimensional measurements were made on a normal, dried adult vertebral column, using the recently developed reflex microscope. Preliminary conclusions are drawn from these measurements regarding the geometry of the lumbar and thoracic vertebrae. Subsequent measurements were made on a number of unrelated fifth lumbar and first sacral vertebrae and comparisons were made with the findings of the "master model".
