Spongy Bone

Cancellous bone, also Called spongy Bone , is the internal issue of the skeletal bone Cancellous bone has a higher surface- area to Volume ratio than cortical Bone and It is less dense. This makes it weaker and more Flexible . The greater surface area also makes it suitable for metabolic activities such the exchange of calcium ions. Cancellous bone is typically found at the ends of Long bones, near joints and in the interior of vertebrae . Cancellous bone is highly vascular and often contains red Bone marrow where hematopoiesis ,the production of blood cells occurs.
