Trabecular bone lattice arising from endochondrial ossification.
Portion of a long bone, usually funnel-shaped between the shaft (diaphysis) and the epiphyseal (growth) plate. This is a region of growth and remodelling during development. image
The region immediately beneath the growth plate (epiphysis) of a bone.
The wider portion at the end of a long bone where growth occurs in infants and children.
The region of a long bone between the epiphysis and diaphysis, corresponding to the location of the epiphyseal cartilage of the developing bone.
the growing part of a long bone between the diaphysis and the epiphysis
Greek meta = after, and physis = growth; hence, the end of the shaft of a bone alongside the epiphysial or growth cartilage; adjective - metaphysial.
The wider part towards the end of a 'long bone'.
The segment of a long bone located between the end part (epiphysis) and the shaft (diaphysis). It consists mostly of cancellous bone within a thin cortical shell.
The flared area of junction of the epiphysis with the diaphysis of a long bone
Portion of the bone separating the end of a long bone (epiphysis) and the shaft (diaphysis).
portion of a developing long bone between the diaphysis or shaft and epiphysis; the growing portion of the bone
The metaphysis is the growing portion of a long bone that lies between the epiphyses (the ends) and the diaphyses (the shaft).
The metaphysis is the body of cartilage that separates the epiphyses and the diaphysis of long bones during growth. It is this part of the bone that grows during childhood; as it grows, it ossifies near the diaphysis and the epiphyses. At roughly 18 to 25 years of age, the metaphysis stops growing altogether and completely ossifies into solid bone.
