The central space that runs up and down the inside of the spinal column, that encases the spinal cord. Also known as the vertebral canal.
Each vertebra and its processes surround and protect an arch-shaped central opening. These arches, aligned to run down the spine, form the spinal canal, which encloses the spinal cord.
The canal that extends through the vertebrae and contains the spinal cord.
The fluid filled space at the center of the spinal cord. The spinal canal is continuous with the ventricles of the brain.
the mature space in the core of the spinal cord (filled with CSF) formed from the original lumen of the neural tube. (More? Neural Notes)
The canal that contains the spinal cord, formed by the vertebral foramina of successive vertebrae.
The canal is bony channel formed by the vertebrae bones. The spinal cord and nerve roots lie within the canal and are protected by the bones. The “spinal canal” is not the same as the “spine.” The word “spine” describes only the bones and ligaments.
Body channel that contains and helps protect the spinal cord and nerve roots.
The hole that runs the length of the spine containing the spinal cord, its covering and the nerves that leave it in pairs at each level of vertebrae.
The bony channel that is formed by the intravertebral foramen of the vertebrae and in which contains the spinal cord and nerve roots. The space between the vertebral body anteriorly and the lamina and spinal process posteriorly.
Vertebral canal. A relatively narrow tubular passage or channel in the spine, encasing the spinal cord and the nerves. It changes in size at different levels, and its diameter can be measured very well with axial views of the CT scan.
between head and pelvis through which spinal cord and nerve roots travel surrounded by vertebra and ligaments
The hole running down the length of the spine, containing the spinal cord.
A bony channel located in the vertebral column that protects the spinal cord and nerve roots.
The cavity within the vertebral column through which the spinal cord passes.
The channel in the spinal column that contains the spinal cord.
The spinal canal (or vertebral canal) is the space in vertebrae through which the spinal cord passes. This canal is enclosed within the intervertebral foramen of the vertebrae. In the intervertebral spaces, the canal is protected by the ligamentum flavum posteriorly and the posterior longitudinal ligament anteriorly.
