The study of bones, osteology, is a fundamental part of any serious voyage into the world of human anatomy. Our bony elements serve multiple complex purposes, including support, protection, a framework for movement, and the production of blood cells, just to name a few. Courses such as physiology or histology may adequately cover the function of bone cells (osteocytes) and their supporting cells. However, to properly relate to the macroscopic structures of the body, an understanding of osteologic morphology is key.
We believe that academic ventures into bony anatomy can be simple; hence, the production of this manual. We begin by exploring individual bones, or collections of bones, from a distant perspective – keeping the overall image of the bone(s) in mind. Higher power photographs then help draw out further detail. It is our hope that this process, coupled with the use of fewer terms, will make this atlas “user friendly.”
