Cervical pedicle

In the cervical region, the cervical nerve root exits above the cervical pedicle of its like-numbered cervical vertebra (opposite to the situation of the lumbar spine, due to the fact that there are 8 cervical nerve roots and only 7 cervical vertebrae).

Each root exits pases through its neural foramen in close relation to the undersurface of the cervical pedicle.
