i anatomical positions
I. Anatomical Positions
  • Vocabulary Terms
    • Dorsal: top side of bilateral symmetry
    • Ventral: bottom side of bilateral symmetry
    • Anterior: front of bilateral symmetry
    • Posterior: back of bilateral symmetry
vocabulary terms cont
Vocabulary Terms (cont.)

SUPERIOR

INFERIOR

CRANIAL

CAUDAL

  • Superior: highest or top most part of the body
  • Inferior: lowest part of the body
  • Cranial: at the head of the body
  • Caudal: at the end of the body
vocabulary terms cont1
Vocabulary Terms (cont.)

PROXIMAL

DISTAL

  • Medial: close to the midline of the body
  • Lateral: towards the side
  • Proximal: close to the point of attachment
  • Distal: away from point of attachment
ii body planes
II. Body Planes
  • Body Planes: fixed lines of reference along which a body with bilateral symmetry (two sides that mirror each other) can be divided
  • Types of Body Planes
    • Frontal Plane (AKA Coronal Plane): a vertical plane running from side to side
      • Divides the body or any of its parts into anterior and posterior portions
body planes cont
Body Planes (cont.)
  • Sagittal Plane (AKA Lateral Plane): a vertical plane running from front to back
    • Divides the body or any of its parts into right and left, but not necessarily equal sides
body planes cont1
Body Planes (cont.)
  • Median Plane: same as sagittal plane, but always cuts through the midline of the body
    • Divides the body or any of its parts into right and left halves
body planes cont2
Body Planes (cont.)
  • Transverse Plane (AKA Axial Plane): a horizontal plane
    • Divides the body or any of its parts into upper and lower parts
