Sesamoid bone
A small bone embedded in a tendon; resembling a sesame seed.
Long bone
A bone longer than wide consisting of a diaphysis and two epiphyses with their articular cartilage.
Diaphysis
The long shaft of a long bone
Epiphysis
The two enlarged end of a long bone.
Metaphysis
Thee joining point of the diaphysis and the epiphysis of a growing bone. This is the part of the epiphysis cartilage being replaced by bone.
Periosteum

Endosteum
The fibrous and cellular tissue lining thee medullary cavity of a bone.
Apophydid
Any outgrowth of a bone; a process.
Cortex
Compact bone surrounding the medullary cavity.
Epiphyseal cartilage, growth plate
The plate of cartilage between diaphysis and epiphysis of immature long bone. This is where lengthening of long bone takes place.
Compact bone
