sharp or thornlike process or projection; also called a spine; the sharp ridge running diagonally across the posterior surface of the scapula
This is the posterior bony strut that protrudes from the lamina of each vertebral bone. It provides an attachment for the muscles.

The posterior protruding part of the vertebrae that can be seen or felt when examining the spine.
The bony projection towards the back of the body from the center of the arch of a vertebra.

A part of the vertebra. A spinous process protrudes from each vertebra. The spinous processes create the â€œbumpsâ€ you feel in the middle of your back.
The portion of the vertebrae that protrudes posteriorly from the spinal column. The spinous processes create the "bumps" felt on the midline of the back. The most posterior extension of the spine arising from the laminae.
A bony prominence projecting backward from a vertebra that can be felt under the skin on one's back.
The prominent posterior projection of a vertebra; formed by the fusion of two laminae.
A posterior protruding part of the spinal bone that can be seen or felt when examining the spine.
A small projection off the posterior portion of each vertebrae that functions as an attachment site for muscles or ligaments of the spine.
The bony projection from the back of the vertebral lamina to which the muscles are attached.
The spinous process of a vertebra is directed backward and downward from the junction of the laminae, and serves for the attachment of muscles and ligaments.
