Medium magnification view of an area of compact bone (CB) from the metaphysis region showing areas of remodelling. Periosteal (PO) connective tissue generally runs parallel to the bone surface; Sharpey's fibres (SF) represent areas where collagen bundles approach the bone surface at right angles and become embedded in the bony matrix.
