Disc bulges are characterized as focal or broad based. Focal means that less than 90 degrees of the disc is protruding outside of the radius of the vertebrae. Broad based means that 90 to 180 degrees of the disc are protruding outside of the vertebrae. The protruding discs are located in the lumbar region.
