herniated disk

Herniated intervertebral disk, herniated nucleus pulposus, prolapsed intervertebral disk, slipped disk Neurology The herniation of an intervertebral disk, most commonly, lumbar; the term herniation in this context describes a spectrum of disk defects
Herniation disk types, used for MRI exams
Bulge–circumferential symmetric extension of the disk beyond interspace
Protrusion–focal or asymmetric extension of the disk beyond interspace
Extrusion–more extreme extension of the disk beyond interspace Note: Bulges and protrusions on MRI examination are common findings in normal subjects, and appear to be coincidental findings–NEJM 1994; 331:69oa
