Intro to Rad Science: Terminology Ch. 3

Musculoskeletal Consists of bones, articulation (joints), and muscles. Ligaments connects bones to bones. Tendons connects muscles to bones. Fascia covers muscles. Cartilage covers bone ends. 1. Framework for organ systems 2. Protect organs 3. Allows movement
