FOURTH FIGURE OF THE TWENTY-FIRST CHAPTER


In this figure we have illustrated the outer or posterior surface of a dog’s scapula so that the difference in the acromion or upper process of the scapula between the human scapula and that of a dog or sheep may readily be considered. A and B will therefore signify the convexity or dorsum of the scapula, A its lower area [fossa infraspinata] and B its upper [fossa supraspinata], closer to the animal’s neck or head. C and D will identify the spine of the scapula [spina scapulae], which does not extend above the neck of the scapula. E marks the scapular neck [collum scapulae].
