Photo[edit]

Does anyone have a good photo of an example of periosteum in a person? That would be a good link, and I'm interested in seeing it, as well as reading more about the definition. Thanks.

Any picture of the exterior of a bone is essentially a picture of the periosteum. It's the white coating on the outside of a bone. WLU 22:56, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

illustration[edit]

The illustration accompanying this article is called "meninges of the CNS." As neither "CNS" nor "meninges" are defined, or even mentioned, in the article, one must wonder why it was posted. 172.166.3.113 15:42, 9 November 2007 (UTC)RKH

Wikilinks added to the caption; the periosteum is the second layer in the illustration, and I'm guessing it's hard to find an image that singles out or even identifies the periosteum. WLU 15:52, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Other bones with no periosteum[edit]
