Humerus head
Proximal end rounded head fits into shallow glenoid cavity of the scapula
Humerus lateral/medial epicondyle
Distal parts flanking the coroniod fossa and olecranon fossa
Greater/lesser tubercle
Opposite the head on proximal end. 2 bony projections that are sites of muscle attachment
Deltoid tuberosity
midpoint of shaft of humerus shaft-roughened area
Trochlea
On distal end of humerus. Looks like a spool
Capitulum
Lateral of trochlea. ball-like. Articulates with bones of forearm
Radius Styloid process
Distal "pointy tip"
Radial tuberosity
Just below the head where tendon of the bicept muscle attaches
neck of radius
immediately below head
radius head
Disc shaped head. Proximal end.
Ulna- Olecranon process (forms elbow)
Proximal end. posterior. Grips trochlea of humerus in a pliers-like joint with coranoid process
Ulna-Coranoid process
Proximal end anterior.
Femur-greater trochanter
attachemnt for muscle. Proximal. Next to head.
Femur head
Ball like head
femur neck
under ball shaped head
intertrochantic crest
Posterior. Separates greater and lesser trochanters
Lateral/medial condyle-femur
Distal femur. Articulates with tibia below (looks like dumbell-medial side of head and lateral side of greater trochanter)
Patella
Flat petellat surface. Anterior diatal femur. Knee cap.
Fibula Lateral malleolus
Distally forms the outer part of ankle.
Fibula head
proximal end
Fibula
stick-like, along side tibia. no part of knee joint.
Tibia
the inner and thicker of the two bones of the human leg between the knee and ankle
tibia medial malleolus
Distally forms the inner buldge of ankle
Tibial tuberosity
Roughened area on anterior surface for ligaments to attach
Tibia anterior crest
sharp rige on anterior surface
Tarsals-calcaneus
heel bone
Tarsals-Talus
between tibia and calcaneus- "ankle bone"
Tarsals navicular
"distal to talus"
metatarsals
5 form the sole of foot
Phlanges
14 forms toes
