what are the 3 layers of the bone

1. circumferential layer
2. concentric layer
3. interstitial layer


describe the circumferential layer

surrounding the outer most perimeter of the adult bones


describe the concentric layer (circles)

make up the BULK of the compact bone and metabolic unit of bone called "osteon"


describe the interstitial layer

b/w the concentric circles


when we have our osteoblasts make bone

...then they are called osteocytes
...they make them in these concentric circles
...will have laminae
...which are organized into these concentric rings
...then these concentric rings then will have a canal called haverson canal
...each canal will have the laminae and osteocytes
