scapular notch
a notch on the superior border of the scapula located medial to the attachment of the coracoid process
acromion
a broad, flat process located at the lateral end of the scapular spine; it articulates with the clavicle
supraspinatus fossa
a broad depression located superior to the spine of the scapula
humerous
the bone of the arm (brachium)
head of humerous
the smooth, rounded proximal end of the ulna
greater tubercle
the large projection located lateral to the head of the humerus
lesser tubercle
the projection located lateral to the head of the humerus on the anterior surface
lateral epicondyle
a knob-like projection on the lateral side of the humerus proximal to the capitulum
medial epicondyle
a knob-like projection on the medial side of the humerus proximal to the trochlea
capitulum
the part of the distal condyle of the humerus that articulates with the radius
trochlea
the articular surface on the medial condyle of the humerus that articulates with the ulna
olecranon fossa
the fossa at the distal end of the humerus into which the olecranon fits when the arm is in full extension
coronoid process
a flared process of the lower anterior part of the upper articular surface of the ulna fitting into the coronoid fossa when the arm is flexed
olecranon process
the large process of the ulna that projects behind the elbow joint, forms the bony prominence of the elbow, and receives the insertion of the triceps muscle
radial notch
where the proximal end of the radius articulates with the ulna
styloid process (ulna)
an eminence on the distal extremity of the ulna projecting from the medial and posterior part of the bone and giving attachment to a ligament of the wrist joint
styloid process (radius)
a conical prolongation of the lateral surface of the distal extremity of the radius that gives attachment to several tendons and ligaments
radial tuberosity
eminense beneath the neck, on the medial side of the radius; its surface is divided into a posterior, rough portion, for the insertion of the tendon of the Biceps brachii
carpal tunnel
a passage between the flexor retinaculum of the hand and the carpal bones that is sometimes a site of compression of the median nerve .
axilla
the cavity beneath the junction of the arm or anterior appendage and shoulder or pectoral girdle containing the axillary artery and vein
thenar eminence
the ball of the thumb
hypothenar eminence
the prominent part of the palm of the hand above the base of the little finger
palmar aponeurosis
an aponeurosis of the palm of the hand that consists of a superficial longitudinal layer continuous with the tendon of the palmaris longus and of a deeper transverse layer
infraspinous foss
Beneath the neck, on the medial side, is an eminence, the radial tuberosity; its surface is divided into a posterior, rough portion, for the insertion of the tendon of the Biceps brachii,
subscapular fossa
the concave depression of the anterior surface of the scapul
coracoid process
a process of the scapula in most mammals representing the remnant of the coracoid bone of lower vertebrates that has become fused with the scapula and in humans is situated on its superior border and serves for the attachment of various muscles
infraglenoid tubercle
located at the bottom of the glenoid fossa
supraglenoid
located at the top of the glenoid fossa
glenoid fossa
the shallow cavity of the upper part of the scapula by which the humerus articulates with the pectoral girdle
sternal end
blunt end of the clavicle that articulates with the manubrium
acromial end
flat/bladelike end of the clavicle that articulates with the acromium process
intertubercular (bicipital) groove
a furrow on the upper part of the humerus occupied by the long head of the biceps
deltoid tuberosity
rough triangular bump on the outer side of the middle of the humerus that is the site of insertion of the deltoid
sternoclavicular
of, relating to, or being articulation of the sternum and the clavicl
acromioclavicular
relating to, being, or affecting the joint connecting the acromion and the clavicle
glenohumeral
of, relating to, or connecting the glenoid cavity and the humerus
interosseous membrane

interphalangeal
situated or occurring between phalanges <an joint> : also : of or relating to an interphalangeal joint
intercarpal
situated between, occurring between, or connecting carpal bones
