Caption: Leg bones and joints. Computer artwork of a side view of the bones and joints of a human leg. At the hip the femur (thigh bone) articulates with the innominate bone of the pelvis. The femur articulates with the tibia (shin bone) and patella (knee cap) at the knee. The other lower leg bone is the fibula (thinner, at right of tibia). Both the fibula and tibia articulate with the tarsal bones of the ankle. This is followed by the metatarsals, and the phalanges of the toes. In both the hip and knee, the ends of the bones are shown covered in articular cartilage (a form of hyaline cartilage). Part of the lumbar spine is shown above the pelvis.
