A vinegar cup; socket of the hip bone; a measure of about one eighth of a pint, etc.
The bony cup which receives the head of the thigh bone.
The cavity in which the leg of an insect is inserted at its articulation with the body.
the rounded cavity on the external surface of the coxal (hip) bone that receives the head of the femur
A large cup-shaped cavity (socket) on the lateral side of the pelvis in which the head of the femur articulates
The hip socket; the cup-shaped cavity in the outside surface of the hipbone in which the head of the femur fits.
Opening (hole) on each side of a pelvis that allows for the insertion of a ball-like proximal end of each femur. A distinguishing character of a dinosaur.
the cup-shaped hollow in the hipbone into which the head of the femur fits to form a ball-and-socket joint
Socket of the hipbone that holds the femur(thigh bone).
abbrev. ac the socket on the hip into which the head of the femur fits (see figures and )
The cup-shaped cavity or socket at the base of the hipbone where the ball-shaped head of the femur fits.
the cuplike cavity on the lateral aspect of the hip girdle that receives the head of the femur
Literally, ‘the cup' in Latin. The acetabulum is the ‘socket' of the ball and socket hip joint. It is made of the three bones of the pelvis and is covered with gliding cartilage called articular cartilage. The ball of the hip joint, the femoral head moves within the acetabulum.
Latin acetum = vinegar (cf. acetic), and abulum = small receptacle, hence, a vinegar cup, hence, the socket for the head of the femur, adjective - acetabular.
The large cup shaped cavity (hip socket) into which the head of the femur (thigh bone) fits to create the hip joint.
The "cup" or "socket" portion of the hip joint.
A large cup-shaped cavity that is the point of articulation between the femur and the os coxae of the pelvis. image
the cup shaped socket on the hip bone
The femoral head fits into this rounded portion of the pelvis to form the hip joint.
The fossa on the lateral aspect of the pelvis that accommodates the head of the femur.
The cup-shaped socket of the hip joint. In fact, in Latin an "acetabulum" is cup, a vinegar cup. The acetabulum is a feature of the pelvis. The head (upper end) of the femur (the thighbone) fits into the acetabulum and articulates with it, forming a ball-and-socket joint.
The cavity into which an appendage is articulated.
The acetabulum is a concave surface of the pelvis, formed by the parts of three bones. The head of the femur meets with the pelvis at the acetabulum, forming the hip joint.
