vet-Anatomy the interactive atlas of veterinary anatomy
vet-Anatomy is an interactive atlas of veterinary anatomy based on medical imaging. vet-Anaotmy has been created on the same framework than the popular award-wining e-Anatomy, but dedicated to animals, under the direction of Dr. Susanne AEB Boroffka, dipl. ECVDI, PhD.
The humerus is the only bone of the skeleton of the arm (thoracic stylopodium).
It is composed by three basic segments:
The proximal extremity, articulating with the scapula and bearing the head and the major and lesser tubercles
The body (shaft) bearing the deltoid tuberosity
The distal extremity bearing the humeral condyle and articulating with the radius and ulna
