Quiz! How well do you know the names for human body parts?

Have you ever heard doctors talking and wondered what on earth they’re talking about when they refer to certain parts of the body?

That’s probably because pretty much every part of the body, from limbs to bones, has its own Latin or medical name.

Some might be fairly well known, but others are a bit more unusual.

Take our 15-question multiple choice quiz to see how many technical names for common parts of the human body you can recognise.

In some clues we’ve given you the Latin name and asked you to work out which body part it is, and for others you’ll have to guess what the Latin name is from the description.

See how you do and whether you’d cut it as a wannabe medic.
