Bone tissue having a spongy or latticelike internal structure; an example is the bone marrow.
also called trabecular bone; an inner spongy structure that resembles a honeycomb. The inner bone cavities contain bone marrow where red blood cells are produced.
The type of tissue found in the marrow cavity of bone.
Type of bone with a porous structure made up of intersecting plates and bars (lattice-like structure) that form small cavities or cells. Soft, spongy bone.
Spongy bone, composed of a network of bony struts.
Spongy bone composed of a loose latticework of bony traveculae and bone marrow within the inerspace found in the enlarged ends of long bone.
Spongy bone tissue located in the medulla of bone rather than the cortex which is compact. This bone is composed of a variable trabecular network containing interstitial tissue which may be hematopoietic.
Same as trabecular bone.
The spongy or honeycomb structure of some bone tissue typically found at the ends of long bones.
Bone substance made of thin intersecting lamellae, usually found internal to compact bone.
honeycomb bone located in the shaft or central areas of the bone
Spongy bone; trabecular bone
Cancellous bone (also known as trabecular, or spongy) is a type of osseous tissue with a low density and strength but very high surface area, that fills the inner cavity of long bones. The external layer of Cancellous bone contains red bone marrow where the production of blood cellular components (known as hematopoiesis) takes place. Cancellous bone is also where most of the arteries and veins of bone organs are found.
