Spongy Porous Bone Tissue Is Also Called?

Answer

A spongy, porous bone is called cancellous bone. It is also called trabecular bone. There are two types of osseous tissue that make up bones. One is the cancellous bone and the other is the cortical bone. The cortical bone is harder and denser than the cancellous. Since cancellous bone also has a greater surface area than cortical hone, it also allows for easier metabolic activity. Cancellous bone has a lot of red bone marrow and allows for the production of blood cells.
