  1. os scaphoideum

    Os Scaphoideum, also known as the scaphoid bone, is one of the eight small carpal bones in the wrist. It is situated on the radial side of the carpus, between the hand and forearm. It has a unique shape that resembles a boat, which is where it gets its name (scaphoid comes from the Greek word 'skaphos', meaning boat). This bone is crucial for functionality and mobility of the wrist, but it is also the most commonly fractured carpal bone due to its position.
