Incomplete fusion of L1 transverse processes bilaterally, rudimentary intervertebral disc between L5 and S1 indicating incomplete lumbarization of L1, and lucent lesions consistent with Schmorl's nodes involving the inferior endplates of L1 and L2, and the superior endplate of L3.
Recognising non-united transverse process apophyses is important as not to mistake them for transverse process fractures.
