Microscopic Structure of Bone

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The bone contains a multitude of small irregular spaces, approximately fusiform in shape, called lacunae, with very minute canals leading from them and anastomosing with similar little prolongations from the other lacunae. Shown is a longitudinal section from the human ulna, showing Haversian canal, lacunae, and canaliculi.
