a large, triangular, flat bone located in the superior part of the posterior thorax between the levels of the 2nd and 7th rids
A projection on the inferior lateral surface of the clavicle. It is an attachment point for the conoid ligament, which attaches scapula and clavicle
Impression of the costoclavicular ligament
On the inferior surface and medial end of the clavicle. It is an attachment point for the costoclavicular ligament, which attaches the clavicle and first rib.
located at the lateral end of the spine of scapula, it is an expanded and flattened process
the angle where the medial (vertebral) border and the lateral (axillary) border of scapula meet, it is at the inferior end of the scapula
a prominent indentation along the superior edge of scapula through which the suprascapular nerve pass
depression on the posterior scapula surface, inferior to the spine, on to which infraspinatus muscles of shoulder attach
depression on the posterior surface of scapula, superior to the spine, on to which supraspinatus muscle of shoulder attach
a hollowed out area on the anterior surface of the scapula, it is where the subscapularis muscle of shoulder attach
located at the lateral end of the superior border, it is an anterior projection, on to which tendon and ligaments attach
Head of humerus
the proximal end of humerus that articulates with the glenoid cavity to form the glenohumeral joint
distal to the head of humerus, it is the former site of the adult epiphyseal growth plate
just distal to the greater and lesser tubercles, it is where the head tapers off to the shaft of the humerus, it is named so because it is often where fracture occurs
part of the humerus where it is cylindrical at its proximal end, but gradually becomes more triangular until it is flat and broad at its distal end
in the middle lateral portion of the shaft, it is a V-shaped roughened projection
on the posterior surface of the body (shaft), it runs along the deltoid tuberosity and contains the radial nerve
it is a rounded knob on the lateral aspect of the bone that articulates with the head of the radium
it is an anterior depression just above the capitulum that articulates with the head of radium when the forearm is flexed
Just medial to the capitulum, it is a spool-shaped surface that articulates with the trochlear notch of the ulna
just above the trochlea, it is an anterior depression that receives the coronoid process of ulna when forearm is flexed
it is a posterior depression that receives the olecranon of the ulna when the forearm is extended
