Medical Media Images has created an Interactive Image of an Artificial Disc Replacement of the Lumbar spine (low back). This Interactive Image allows the viewer to learn about Artificial Disc Replacements from a Color X-Ray.

The Interactive Image above shows the Lumbar Spine (low back) from the front. The last two ribs can be seen at the top of the picture, the pelvis at the bottom. An Artificial Disc Replacement Device has been implanted at the 2nd lowest Disc (L4/5). The metal components are seen in blue. They are implanted into the Vertebrae above and below. The green component is the flexible plastic core which provides the movement.
