Annotation
/cytol: consider also OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; /‌embryol: consider also OSTEOGENESIS; /‌surg: consider also OSTEOTOMY or ARTHRODESIS or FRACTURE FIXATION & its specifics; differentiate from SKELETON which is almost never used: restrict SKELETON to bone arrangement as a whole & not for "skeletal" which usually means "bone" (= BONE AND BONES); inflammation = OSTEITIS; necrosis = OSTEONECROSIS;
