What are the two bone markings that form the distal radioulnar joint?

The lateral side projects distally as the styloid process. In the medial surface, there is a concavity, called the ulnar notch, which articulates with the head of ulna, forming the distal radioulnar joint. The distal surface of the radius has two facets, for articulation with the scaphoid and lunate carpal bones.

Similarly one may ask, what type of joint is formed between the radius and ulna?

The distal radioulnar articulation (inferior radioulnar joint) is a joint between the two bones in the forearm; the radius and ulna. It is one of two joints between the radius and ulna, the other being the proximal radioulnar articulation.

Additionally, is the radial head proximal or distal? Head of radius. The radius and ulna of the left forearm, posterior surface. The top is proximal (elbow) and bottom is distal (wrist). The head of the radius has a cylindrical form, and on its upper surface is a shallow cup or fovea for articulation with the capitulum of the humerus.

Thereof, what forms the palm of the hand and the heads of these bones form the knuckles?

The expanded distal end of each metacarpal bone articulates at the metacarpophalangeal joint with the proximal phalanx bone of the thumb or one of the fingers. The distal end also forms the knuckles of the hand, at the base of the fingers. The remaining metacarpal bones are united together to form the palm of the hand.

Which bones form the palm of the hand quizlet?

is composed of 5 metacarpal bones that make up the palm of the hand. The metacarpals articulate with the carpals proximally and with the phalanges distally.
