Surgical neck
What are 2 terms for the long, central region of the SCAPULA or any other long bone? did he mean humerus?
Diaphysis
(Contains medullary cavity - houses marrow - marrow creates blood)
What rough prominence lies on the lateral side of the middle portion of the humerus?
Deltoid tuberosity
What are distal, easily palpated bony projections on the humerus?

From lateral to medial, what are the 2 bones of the forearm?
Ulna & radius
What is the relation of the radius and ulna in anatomical position?
Parallel with the radius being located laterally
Which of the 2 bones of the forearm moves during pronation?
Radius
(Crossed radius rotates around the ulna)
What portion of the radius articulates with the humerus?
Head
(Articulates with capitulum of humerus)
What narrow region of the radius lies just distal to the articulation with the humerus?
