Supraspinous Fossa definition

To the curious person searching Google for this and being directed to my blog, the term refers to a region of one's shoulderblade. The ridgelike part that sticks out is the "spine" and supraspinous means "above the spine" or "above the ridge." "Fossa" means "low area" or "valley." Therefore the whole term means "Low area above the ridge."

Wouldn't it be cool if doctors and anatomicists would just speak English?

Hope that helps!

To those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about - that's OK. Obama is still a liar and the sun will rise tomorrow. That's all you need to know for now.


  1. I knew exactly what you were talking about. Does that make me s-m-r-t?

  2. I doubt Obugger even knows how to pronounce this term, if that's any consolation.

  3. Thanks for the clarification at the end. I was confused and worried.

  4. I am comfortable now. I knew the first part (don't ax me how) and knew the second part as well. It's just good to see it "out there", yannow?


Family-friendly phrasing heartily encouraged.
