DefinitionType of BoneExample(s)
Bone embedded in tendons. Since it acts to hold the tendon further away from the joint, the angle of the tendon is increased and thus the leverage of the muscle is increased.
Tubular bone characterized by the shaft, the diaphysis, that is much greater in length than width. Comprised mostly of compact bone and contains a marrow cavity.
Extra bone piece that occurs within a suture in the cranium.
Thin and generally curved, with two parallel layers of compact bones sandwiching a layer of spongy bone. Does not contain a marrow cavity.
