This Item includes 2,900 files with the individual facet joint surfaces from 29 lumbar spines from L1 to S1 levels. Each specimen has four files per level: the superior and inferior surfaces for each side of the joint.
UPDATE Version 2: The files for 1312011 FLEX position have been corrected. In Version 1 those were incorrect files.
Additionally, these surfaces were captured at one of five spine positions: neutral, flexion, extension, right lateral bending, right axial rotation.
Nomenclature: [Specimen number][spinal Level][side][location][position]
Example: "1405044L2RSNEU.txt" is the Right Superior L2 facet surface of specimen 1405044 in neutral position.
Specimen number is a 7 number string ex. 1405044
Spinal Level: L1 to L5 in addition to S1 (Sacrum)
Side is Left or Right (L or R)
Location is Inferior (I) or Superior (S)
Position is one of five: neutral (NEU), flexion (FLEX), extension (EXT), right lateral bending (RLB), and right axial rotation (RAR).
