Skeletal System I

Nomenclature

This is a lateral view of the vertebral column.  Identify each numbered region of the column by listing in the numbered answer blanks the region name first, and then the specific vertebrae involved (example: sacral region, S# to S#).  Also identify the modified vertebrae indicated by number 6 and 7 in the illustration.  Select different colors for each vertebral region and use them to color the coding circles and the corresponding regions.
