cuerpo de la vértebra lumbar L2

Lendenwirbelkörper --> cuerpo de una vértebra lumbar (Gran diccionario médico alemán-español de Fernando Navarro)

El examen radiológico confirmó la presencia de lesiones óseas líticas principalmente en el cuerpo de la vértebra lumbar 2 (L2) con extensión a la L1 y L3.

Por supuesto también se puede decir simplemente «de la segunda vértebra lumbar», pero sobre todo en los informes médicos se pone la abreviatura (L2) para ahorra tiempo y ser precisos.
