coracoid process (GreekĄG korax = curve door handleĄF eidos = appearance)
scapula - non-palpable structure
(GreekĄG glene = socket)
Have the subject sit in a high-back chair to relax scapular muscles.
Follow the outline of the scapula, you can find three borders (superior, lateral, and medial borders)
and three angles (superior, lateral, and inferior angles).
The spine of the scapula rests transversely across the upper portion of the scapula.
By following the spine of the scapula medially, the root of the scapula
is at the medial end of the spine of the scapula, which is a smooth triangular-shaped area.
Just below the lateral end of the clavicle, the coracoid process can be identified
as a round process.
