Acromion Process

The Human Scapula Bone

Acromion Process is an alternative term that is used in the same way as simply acromion, which is a structural feature on the scapula bone (also known as the shoulder blade or shoulder bone).

There is an acromion, which is also known as an acromion process, on the upper-surface of each of the scapulae that form the human pectoral girdle, which is also known as the 'shoulder girdle'.

The acromion or acromion process is the high-point located at the lateral (i.e. the furthest from the vertebral column) end of the spine of the scapula.

The acromion articulates with the clavicle to form the acromioclavicular joint.
