Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of cancellous (spongy) bone of the human shin. Bone tissue is either compact or cancellous. Compact bone usually makes up the exterior of the bone, while cancellous bone is found in the interior. Cancellous bone is characterised by a honeycomb arrangement of trabeculae. These structures help to provide support and strength. The spaces within this tissue normally contain bone marrow, a blood forming substance. Credit: SCIENCE SOURCE/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY

fyeahmedicine: Bone tissue. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of cancellous (spongy) bone. Bone tissue can be either cortical (compact) or cancellous. Cortical bone usually makes up the exterior of the bone, while cancellous bone is found in the interior. Cancellous bone is characterised by a honeycomb arrangement, comprising a network of trabeculae (rod-shaped) fibrous tissue. These structures provide support and strength to the bone. The spaces within this tissue contain bone…

Bone vs. Stone: How to Tell the Difference

Compact and cancellous bone. I love how this diagram includes the Volkmann's canal, the Haversian canal, the canaliculi and the priosteum. Good way to study.

Jindal Medi Surge are manufacturers of high quality Cancellous screws designed for fixation of cancellous bone. They are most commonly used in the metaphyses of long bones where cancellous bone is abundant. They have more deeply cut and more widely spaced threads. Since cancellous bone is less dense, the screw threads cut their path in the bone when the screw is inserted. Partialy threaded cancellous screws are often used as lag screws for metaphyseal fractures. All screw are available in…
