Scapula shoulder blade
Dorsal Surface the back side of the Scapula
Ventral Surface the front side of the Scapula; the side resting on the ribs
Spine the sharp piece on the dorsal surface
Acromion the spine turns into this on the top
Coracoid process ventral side, points into shoulder; buzzard head
Glenoid fossa the head of the Humerus fits into here; next to Coracoid process
Scapular notch next to Coracoid; holds muscles
Humerus the bone of the Brachial region
Head of Humerus fits into Glenoid fossa, smooth top part
Greater Tubercle bigger, next to head
Lesser Tubercle smaller, next to head
Intertubercular groove on Humerus where tendons are between tubericles
Medial Epicondyle distal to the head, bump towards the median
Lateral Epicondyle distal to the head, bump farther from the median
Coronoid fossa divit on anterior side of arm next to Capitulum and Trochlea
Olecranon fossa divit on posterior side of bone, larger than Coronoid fossa; "Funny Bone"
Trochlea matches with Ulna; bowtie
Capitulum where the radius sits
Ulna pinky side forearm; "UP"
Olecrannon the process on the top of the Ulna that fits into the Olecranon fossa
Semilunar notch the notch at the top of the ulna
Coronoid process bottom of semilunar notch
Radial notch where the Radius rests against the Ulna
Ulnar Styloid process pointy, on distal end of Ulna
Radius thumb side forearm
Head of Radius circle, holds Capitulum
Radial Styloid Process pointy, distal end of Radius
Carpals (8) So Long To Pinky Here Comes The Thumb Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetrum, Pisiform, Trapezium, Trapezoid, Capitate, Hamate
