<ul><li><p> Axial Skeleton </p><p> BONE TERMINOLOGY FEATURES </p><p> Tuberosity Rounded area on bone often roughened for muscle attachment. </p><p> Tubercle Rounded projection on bone. This is called a tuberosity on the femur. </p><p> Crest Ridgeline of bone for muscle attachment. </p><p> Spine Pointed process projecting from bone as a site of muscle attachment. </p><p> Condyle Knob-like rounded projection, often smooth, as a part of a joint. </p><p> Epicondyle Projected area located above a condyle where muscles can attach. </p><p> Ramus Beam of bone. </p><p> Head Enlarged area on a narrow neck. </p><p> Facet Slightly depressed area on bone that articulates with another bone. </p><p> Fossa More pronounced dip on the bone. </p><p> Meatus Tunnel-like passageway. </p><p> Foramen Large opening though bone or bony features. </p><p> Fissure Narrow opening like a crack. </p></li><li><p> SKELETAL COMPONENTS The skeletal system is comprised of 2 subdivisions: axial and appendicular.
