1

Where does the radius articulate with the humorous and ulna?
What connects the radius and the ulna?

Head articulates with capitulum of humerus and with radial notch of ulna
Interosseous membrane connects the radius and the ulna

2

How many carpal bones in the hand? What are they called?

Eight bones in 2 rows:
Proximal row from (lateral to medial)

3

What are the 3 bones that make up the pelvic girdle (hip bone)

Ilium, ischium, pubis
Together with the sacrum and coccyx, these bones form the body pelvis

4

What is the differences seen between a male and female pelvis

Female pelvis:
Adapted for childbearing
True pelvis (inferior to pelvic brim) defines birth canal
Cavity of the true pelvis is
Broad and
Shallow,
and has greater carrying capacity
Male pelvis:
Tilted less forward
Adapted for support of males heavier build and stronger muscles
Cavity of true pelvis is narrow and deep

5

Comparison of male and female pelves

Bone thickness:
Female: lighter,thinner, and smoother
Male: heavier, thicker and more prominent markings
Pubic arch/angle:
Female-80-90 degrees
Male-50-60 degrees
Acetabula:
F- small and farther apart
M-large, closer together
Sacrum
F-wider, shorter
M-narrow, longer
Coccyx
F- more movable, straighter
M-less movable, curves ventrally

6

The medial maleolus is found is found on which bone?

Tibia

7

The lateral styloid process is found in which bone?

Radius

8

Which 2 carpal bones articulate with the radius?

Scaphoid and lunate

9

The pectoral girdle is made up of which two bones

Clavicle and scapula

10
