Caption: Macrophotograph showing cross-section of human hip bone (innominate bone), that articulates with the rounded head of the femur and forms part of the pelvis (ie in the right & left hip joints). Remnants of compact bone can be seen on the outer edges of the specimen, where the surface appears smooth and continuous. Beneath the compact bone is cancellous or spongy bone, which consists of a network of trabeculae. The spaces within the cancellous bone are filled with the blood-forming substance, the bone marrow. Magnification: X 3 (6x7), X 1.3 (35mm).
