    • Long Bones consist of:
    • - Diaphysis = bone's shaft/body
    • - Epiphysis = proximal & distal ends
    • - Metaphysis = between diaphysis & epiphysis;
    • - Articular Cartilage = hyaline cartilage covering the epiphysis where the bone forms a joint with another bone.
    • - Periosteum = external bone surface
    • - Medullary Cavity = marrow cavity (yellow fatty bone marrow) w/in the diaphysis.
    • - Endosteum = thin membrane lines the internal bone surface facing the medullary cavity.
