Or knee or that matter? Like the inside of a joint where the skin folds up?

Yep, that's what we always called it when starting IVs and drawing blood.
Named after the blood vessel that is there, which is named after the latin term.


an·te·cu·bi·tal
In front of the elbow.

Antecubital fossa.
It is the place where we were not supposed to start IVs in the field, so as to save the good places for the lab, later.

And the analog descriptor for behind the knee is popliteal -- as in popliteal fossa or popliteal artery.
