large deep indentation on the back side of the bone
humerus-anatomical neck
thin lined area outlining the head
humerus-surgical neck
located on the saft of the bone below the anatomical neck
how do you determine left or right?
the head has to be toward the body and the olecrenon fossa must be toward the back

on the laderal side of the gone at the top, a smooth little scooped out place
ulna-styloid process
on the distal end of the gone, a little pointed structure
smooth area on distal end; on opp. side of the styloid process
left or right?
the C faces forward, radial notch is on the lateral side
lateral bone
round end,looks like certs, this is the top
radius-radial tuberosity
rough bump on the front of the bone
radius-styloid process
point on the bottom end of the bone
radius-ulnar notch
on the bottom end, smooth scooped out place
right or left?
head is top, styloid is located laterally, and radial tuberosity points forward
hands are made of?
carpals, metacarpals, phalanges
8 of these, look like pebbles, make wrist
hands-meta carpals
5, make the pal/back of the hand

each coxal bone is made of?
ilium, ischium, and pubis
broad flat part
p.g.-iliac crest
cap around the top of the ilium
p.g.-greater sciatic notch
large notch, inverted V
p.g.-ischial spine

p.g.-ishial tuberosity
rough, rounded bottom of the bone
p.g.-obturator foramen
large hole in the bone, foremen means a hole
are in front of the obturator foramen
the socked
in determining right and left?
the acetubulum must face out, away from the body and the ischial tuberosity is on the bottom
