What are the ten types of connective tissue? Two Categories of CT called Fibrous or “fibroconnective” differ in fiber abundance (this makes up 5 CT types): Dense CT: #1Dense Regular CT or #2Dense Irregular CT Loose CT: #3Areolar CT #4Reticular CT #5Adipose Cartilage has a rubbery matrix for support (3 CT types): “Chondrocytes in lacunae” #6Hyalin Cartilage #7Elastic Cartilage #8Fibrocartilage Richly calcified support: #9Bone Osteocytes make up this CT Fluid CT: #10 Blood and formed elements
