Since the forearm bones are bound together by ligaments, joints, and muscles, it is common for both bones to be involved in a serious forearm injury. Often, one bone is fractured and the other dislocated. The skeleton of the hand comprises the eight carpal bones (bones between the radius and ulna), five metacarpals, and fourteen phalanges. 055 LOWER ARM AND HAND LOWER ARM AND HAND SKELETAL SYSTEM 056 HAND AND WRIST JOINTS The radius widens out at its distal (lower) end to form the wrist joint with the closest two carpal bones, the lunate and scaphoid.

In common with fibrous capsule, strengthened by many other primates, humans have palmar and opposable thumbs. The joints at the base collateral ligaments of the thumb are shaped differently from Proximal those of the fingers. The joint between the phalanx metacarpal of the thumb and the wrist bones is especially mobile and allows the thumb to be brought across the palm of the hand so that the tip of the thumb can touch the other fingertips. Distal phalanx Middle phalanx Distal interphalangeal joint Second metacarpophalangeal joint These joints allow about 90 degrees of flexion, a very small amount of extension, and about 30 degrees of abduction and adduction of the metacarpals First metacarpophalangeal joint Allows about 60 degrees of flexion, a little extension, as well as abduction and adduction Joint capsule Collateral ligament First metacarpal The shortest and thickest of the metacarpals Metacarpophalangeal joint Fifth metacarpal First carpometacarpal joint The first metacarpal lies at right angles to the metacarpals of the fingers, so that flexion and extension of the thumb occur in the same plane as abduction and adduction of the fingers Proximal interphalangeal joint Dorsal carpometacarpal ligament Hamate Capitate Triquetrum Dorsal intercarpal ligament Styloid process of radius Scaphoid Distal interphalangeal joint Radius Dorsal radiocarpal ligament Styloid process of ulna Ulna FINGER (SAGITTAL SECTION) DORSAL /POSTERIOR (BACK) 057 HAND AND WRIST JOINTS Distal phalanx Distal interphalangeal joint Like the proximal interphalangeal joint, this is a simple hinge joint and can move in flexion and extension only Palmar ligament Middle phalanx Proximal interphalangeal joint Deep transverse metacarpal ligament These ligaments bind together the metacarpophalangeal joints of the fingers Distal phalanx Proximal phalanx Palmar ligament Metacarpophalangeal joint First metacarpal Palmar metacarpal ligament Carpometacarpal joint of the thumb Hook of hamate Pisiform Ulnar radiocarpal ligament Joins the ulna to the carpal bones Capitate bone Radiate carpal ligament Fibers radiate from the head of the capitate to other carpal bones Palmar radiocarpal ligament Joins the radius to the carpal bones Lunate Radius Hand X-ray Styloid process of ulna Ulna PALMAR /ANTERIOR (FRONT) This X-ray of the hand clearly shows the carpal bones in the wrist and the joints between them.

We can clearly appreciate the size of the cranial cavity, which is almost completely filled by the brain, with just a small gap for membranes, fluid, and blood vessels. Some of those blood vessels leave deep grooves on the inner surface of the skull: we can trace the course of the large venous sinuses and the branches of the middle meningeal artery. We can also see that the skull bones are not solid, but contain trabecular bone (or diploe), which itself contains red marrow. Some skull bones also contain air spaces, like the sphenoidal sinus visible here.
