Radial tuberosity

Other Terms: Tuberosity, Tuberosity of radius, Radial tubercle, Tuberositas radii, Tubérosité du radius

Description

The tuberosity of the radius is the roughened projection of the anteromedial shaft just below the neck. It is the insertion site for the biceps brachii muscle.

Etymology

Tuberosity is derived from the Latin term tuber meaning a lump. The -osity ending denotes many or to be full of something. This term, then, literally translates as having lots of lumps.
