Is the shoulder distal to the elbow?
It's distal. Meaning the elbow is farther away from the axillary.
Distal is away from the center of body trunk or point of attachment. The wrist is farther away from center of body trunk. Proximal is closest to the body central axis or point… of attachment, so the shoulder is proximal.
yes, try to remember this term as "D" below, "P" above
The elbow is proximal to the wrist. Or you can say that the wrist is distal to the elbow.
Both the hand and forearm are distal to the elbow, while the upper arm and shoulder are proximal to the elbow.
Distal means closer to the bodies trunk. So no the hand is distal to the shoulder the shoulder is proximal to the hand.
No. The proximal end is at the shoulder. The distal end is at the elbow.
The elbow is superior to the hand.
Proximal vs. distal, is in reference to the Point of attachment to the axial skeleton. So the shoulder is proximal to the wrist, or the wrist is distal to the shoulder. Distal…= further away Proximal= closer
Medial (although not being even remotely in the same transverse plane, the term is not commonly used)
