Plain lumbar spine films. See inside.
Subject: Plain lumbar spine films. See inside.

Little rule I learned a long time ago:


1.  Plain as in "plain Jane", no make up, not dressed up and no where to go.  So plain x-rays are those who are not augmented by any special dye or anything else such an arthrogram or MRI.


2.  Plane as in a space between.  A plane for dissection - a place or space to cut into.
