How to remember Carpal bones !!

"She Looks Too Pretty; Try To Catch Her":
· Proximal row then distal row, both lateral-to-medial:
  • Scaphoid
  • Lunate
  • Triquetrium
  • Pisiform
  • Trapezium
  • Trapezoid
  • Capate
  • Hamate
· Alternatively: "She Likes To Play; Try To Catch Her".

Note :The scaphoid bone is a small carpal bone on the thumb side (radial side) of the wrist. It is the most commonly fractured carpal bone.

This is probably because it actually crosses two rows of carpal bones, forming a hinge.
