Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Proximal means closer to the base of the limb. The scapula, sternum, and clavicle are all on the thorax. The radius is one of two bones between your elbow and wrist.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Proximal and distal are relative terms used to compare two anatomical things. Your shoulder is proximal to your elbow, but your elbow is proximal to your wrist.
