Radial styloid process
|Bone: Radial styloid process|
|Bones of left forearm. Anterior aspect. (Styloid process of radius labeled at bottom right.)|
|Latin||processus styloideus radii|
|Gray's||subject #53 220|
The lateral surface of the radius is prolonged obliquely downward into a strong, conical projection, the styloid process, which gives attachment by its base to the tendon of the Brachioradialis, and by its apex to the radial collateral ligament of the wrist-joint.
