anterior, superior projection of the scapula that does not articulate with another bone, but serves as a point for muscles to attach to
the smooth depression in the lateral surface of the scapula that receives the head of the humerus to form the shoulder joint
a small projection on the lateral surface of the humerus mid-way between the proximal and distal ends
a round knob-like process on the lateral distal humerus; the radius articulates at this surface
depression on the posterior surface of the humerus accepting projections from the proximal end of the ulna as the antebrachium extends
small projection that is medial and inferior to the neck of the radius; attachment site for biceps brachii muscle
the ilium, ischium, and pubis fuse to form this pelvic bone; 2 of these join the sacrum and coccyx to form the bony pelvis
the superior fetal and childhood bone that fuses with two other early bones to form the os coxae
inferior and posterior region of the os coxae - an individual bone throughout childhood that fuses with two others to form the os coxae in adults
inferior blunt projection from ischium that hamstring muscles attach to - you sit on this
greater sciatic notch
large indentation on the posterior aspect of the os coxae, between the posterior inferior spine and the ischial spine
the cup-shaped depression in the os coxae into which the head of the femur fits to form a ball-and-socket joint
portion of the pelvis found superior to the pelvic brim; that portion of the abdominal cavity partly protected by the ilium region of the ossa coxae
pelvic cavity found inferior to the pelvic brim; protects the bladder and some reproductive organs
the more superiorly located of the two large projections on the proximal end of the femur; used for muscle attachment
projection between the condyles at the proximal end of the tibia, helps stabilize against side to to side movement
projection from the distal end of the tibia; easy to palpate just superior to the tarsus
projection from the distal end of the fibula; easy to palpate just superior to the tarsus
