Spongy bone: trabeculae. osteocytes connected by canaliculi - no osteons; nutrients delivered by capillaries in endosteum Chemical composition of bone: - organic component: cells (osteocytes, osteoblasts & osteoclasts) & osteoid (organic matrix. .. ground substance & collagen fibers) - inorganic component: hydroxyapatites (mineral salts); mostly calcium phosphates - calcium salt crystals pack around collagen fibers in matrix Bone markings: - outward projections: heads, trochanters, spines,. .. - depressions & grooves - see table 6-1 Bone development: - osteogenesis (ossification) growth; in adults for bone remodeling - Intramembranous ossification:
