    I am confused between the term intervertebral foramen and vertebral foramen, I see both of them are used to indicate the space behind the vertebral body. Are these 2 terms the same? If not, what's the difference? I will be grateful if someone can help me. Thank you.

    Vertebral foramen = the whole in the middle of the vertebra
    Intervebral foramen = The clue is in the name. It is "Inter" - in between. It's the gap formed between two foramen on top of each other. The gaps that form in between them = intervert. for.

    Google image search the terms to see the dfferences.
