Process (anatomy) Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
In anatomy, a process , or apophysis, is a projection or outgrowth of tissue from a larger body. For instance, in a vertebra, a process may serve for muscle attachment and leverage (as in the case of the transverse and spinous processes), or to fit (forming a synovial joint), with another vertebra (as in the case of the articular processes).
