Medical - Medical (general) / positioning of electrodes
French term or phrase: iliaque
Instructions for the positioning of elecrodes call for the green electrode to be placed on the "cheville gauche ou iliaque gauche".

Previous queries include "iliaque" as an adjective and as there is an iliacus muscle, iliac fossa and iliac artery, I would appreciate your help determining what its use should specify in this case.

Many thanks.

Its fibers join the psoas muscle as they both (surrounded by iliac fascia) course through the lacuna musculorum (deep to the inguinal ligament) to attach to the lesser trochanter of the femur. .... The course and branching of the nerve are so variable that the optimum electrode placement may be difficult (Stewart, 2010).

Iliac Crest. The iliac crest is the curved superior border of the ilium, the largest of the three bones that merge to form the os coxa, or hip bone. It is located on the superior and lateral edge of the ilium very close to the surface of the skin in the hip region.

neutral  Daryo: for all we know, it could be any anatomical part of the "iliac/ilium" variety - why would the "iliac crest" be a preferred place to put electrodes???

Here iliaque could be an abbreviation of l'os iliaque
