Intercalated segment

What is meant by the term intercalated segment?

The intercalated segment is the proximal row of carpal bones. The name derives from the fact that there are no tendinous insertions on the proximal carpal bones and that they are inserted (“intercalated”) between the radius and the distal carpal row. The use of this term will become evident in the rest of this chapter.
