Which of the bones of the skull would you also referred to as a cheekbone?

zygomatic bone, also called cheekbone, or malar bone, diamond-shaped bone below and lateral to the orbit, or eye socket, at the widest part of the cheek. It adjoins the frontal bone at the outer edge of the orbit and the sphenoid and maxilla within the orbit.

Is the frontal bone paired?

Frontal bone (Unpaired)– this is the forehead, from the eyebrows to the top of the skull. 2. Parietal bone (Paired)– the left and right parietal bones connect at the top of the skull.

Which bone is the site of jugular foramen and carotid canal?

A jugular foramen is one of the two (left and right) large foramina (openings) in the base of the skull, located behind the carotid canal. It is formed by the temporal bone and the occipital bone.

What part of the femur articulates with the patella?

The patella has a configuration of a triangle with its apex directed inferiorly. Superiorly, it articulates with the trochlea, the distal articulating surface of the femur, which are the main articulating surfaces of the patellofemoral joint.

What connects occipital and temporal bones?

Occipitomastoid suture. Connects occipital and temporal bones.

Which suture unites the 2 parietal bones?

The sagittal suture
The sagittal suture connects the two parietal bones.

Which bones attach to the patella?

The patella, also known as the kneecap, is a flat, rounded triangular bone which articulates with the femur (thigh bone) and covers and protects the anterior articular surface of the knee joint.
Pronunciation /pəˈtɛlə/
Origins present at the joint of femur and tibia fibula
Latin patella

Which bone or bones does the patella articulate with?

The patella, the largest sesamoid bone in the body, articulates only with the patellar surface of the distal femur (patellar notch). The patella rides in the tendon of the quadriceps femoris—the largest muscle of the thigh and the primary extensor of the knee.

What does the patella attach to?

The patella is the largest sesamoid bone in the human body and is located anterior to knee joint within the tendon of the quadriceps femoris muscle, providing an attachment point for both the quadriceps tendon and the patellar ligament.

What type of bone is the metatarsals?

The five metatarsals are dorsally convex long bones consisting of a shaft or body, a base (proximally), and a head (distally). The body is prismoid in form, tapers gradually from the tarsal to the phalangeal extremity, and is curved longitudinally, so as to be concave below, slightly convex above.

What bone is the scapula?

shoulder blade
scapula, also called shoulder blade, either of two large bones of the shoulder girdle in vertebrates. In humans they are triangular and lie on the upper back between the levels of the second and eighth ribs.

What type of bone is the scapula?

flat triangular bone
The scapula is a large, flat triangular bone with three processes called the acromion, spine and coracoid process . It forms the back portion of the shoulder girdle.

What is your first metatarsal?

The first metatarsal bone is the bone in the foot just behind the big toe. The first metatarsal bone is the shortest of the metatarsal bones and by far the thickest and strongest of them. … The base is the part closest to the ankle and the head is closest to the big toe.

What are the five metatarsal bones?

The metatarsus has 5 main points of contact with the ground:
  • The 1st metatarsal head and two sesamoid bones.
  • The 2nd metatarsal head.
  • The 3rd metatarsal head.
  • The 4th metatarsal head.
  • The 5th metatarsal head.

Where is the 4th metatarsal bone?

The base is the part closest to the ankle and the head is closest to the toes. The narrowed part in the middle is referred to as the body or shaft of the bone.
Fourth metatarsal bone
Latin Os metatarsale IV
Anatomical terms of bone

What muscles attach to 1st metatarsal?

The tibialis anterior muscle inserts on the medial cuneiform and the base of the first metatarsal. The peroneus longus muscle inserts on the first metatarsal. The flexor hallucis brevis muscle divides into 2 bellies encasing the sesamoid bones and inserts on the base of the proximal phalanx.

Where is the first metatarsal joint?

The First Metatarsophalangeal joint is located at the base of the big toe. This joint helps with toe-off when walking. This is often the site of a bunion or arthritic changes within the joint.
