Flashcards in Chapter 6 Deck (32)
Surface features, can yield an abundance of anatomical information.
The shaft of a long bone.
The head of a long bone.
The region of a long bone between the epiphysis and diaphysis, corresponding to the location of the epiphyseal cartilage of the developing bone.
The space within a bone that contains the marrow.
The outer layer or portion of an organ or bone.
Calcium phosphate interacts with calcium hydroxide to form crystals of this.
A bone cell responsible for the maintenance and turnover of the mineral content of the surrounding bone.
Concentric layers; the concentric lairs of bone within an osteon.
Microscopic passageways between cell.
A cell that produces the fibers and matrix of bone.
The process of producing new bone matrix.
The organic matrix before calcium salts are deposited.
A cell that dissolves the fibers and matrix of bone.
The basic histological unit of compact bone, consisting of osteocytes organized around a central canal and separated by concentric lamellae.
A connective tissue partition that subdivides an organ.
Responsible for blood cell formation.
Red Bone Marrow
Adipose tissue important as an energy reserve.
Yellow Bone Marrow
The layer that surrounds a bone, consisting of an outer fibrous region and inner cellular region.
An incomplete cellular lining on the inner surfaces of bones.
The formation of bone.
The deposition of calcium salts within a tissue.
The conversion of a cartilaginous model to bone.
The cartilage pad that covers the surface of a bone inside a joint cavity.
The cartilaginous region between the epiphysis and the diaphysis of a growing bone.
The former location of the epiphyseal cartilage is detectable in x-rays is known as this. It remains after epiphyseal growth has ended.
The organic and mineral components of the bone matrix are continuously being recycled and renewed through this process.
A large blood clot.
An enlarged collar of cartilage and bone, forms and encircles a bone tat the level of the fracture.
