Other Terms: Processus coracoideus, Processus coracoïde
This process arises anteriorly from near the top of the head and neck of the scapula. It projects anterolaterally. It can be palpated just below the clavicle under the medial edge of the deltoid muscle. To it attach the pectoralis minor, short head of the biceps brachii, and coracobrachialis muscles.
Korax is Greek for raven or crow. The ancient anatomist Galen named this after its fancied resemblance to the bill or beak of a crow. The term process refers to a projection of bone.
