Lower extremity of right femur viewed from below
Right femur seen from behind
|Latin||Fossa intercondylaris femoris|
In front, the condyles are but slightly prominent, and are separated from one another by a smooth shallow articular depression called the patellar surface; behind, they project considerably, and the interval between them forms a deep notch, the intercondylar fossa (or intercondyloid fossa).
On a lateral radiograph, it is evident as Blumensaat's line.
