The neck of the scapula

The neck of the scapula [collum scapulae] (C, D in figs. 1 and 2), which is between the ends of the upper and lower sides of the scapula, 33 is thick and the scapula itself appears compressed at that point from its wide, thin area and thickened along its latitude. But the longitude or interval of the neck (from C to D in figures 1 and 2), which I measure from the upper part of its body to the lower, greatly exceeds its thickness, which extends from the anterior to the posterior.
