Anterior Scapula

Note the following features on the anterior view:

  • borders- superior, medial and lateral;
  • angles- superior and inferior;
  • coracoid process;
  • acromion;
  • neck of scapula;
  • subscapular fossa- the subscapularis muscle originates here
    (part of rotator cuff);
  • suprascapular notch- the superior transverse scapular
    ligament traverses this notch. The suprascapular artery passes over it, while the suprascapular nerve passes under the ligament.
