No. The elbow is distal to the shoulder. Proximal meanscloser to the body, whereas distal is further away.
Nope -- it's proximal.
The shoulder is proximal to the wrist. The wrist is distal to the shoulder.
The elbow is proximal to the wrist. Or you can say that the wrist is distal to the elbow.
The elbow is superior to the hand.
yes i think
The elbow is proximal to your fingers.
It's distal. Meaning the elbow is farther away from the axillary.
The hand is distal , because your hand is drawing away fromyour body. Proximal means closer to the body. Example: The elbow is distal to the chest. The elbow is proximal toth…e hand. The hand is distal to the chest and the elbow.
Elbow marks the proximal end of forearm.
The wrist is distal to the shoulder. The shoulder is proximal to the wrist.
The left radius and ulna, the bones of the forearm, are distal to the left elbow and proximal to the left wrist. The radius is the larger of the two bones.
