About This File

There are twelve pairs of ribs which are separated by the intercostal spaces. The upper 7 ribs show increase on length progressively while the lower 5 ribs show gradual decrease in length.

The ribs could be:
  • true the first 7 ribs that attach to the sternum directly
  • false from 8th to 10th that attach to the sternum through costal cartilage
  • floating the 11th and 12th with no articulation to the sternum
This model shows pieces of the related vertebral bodies as well the sternum, clavicle and scapula.
This 3D model was created from the file STS_037
The original CT examination can be reviewed at:
