Spinal Anatomy: Anatomical Planes
A body plane is an imaginary flat surface that is used to define a particular area of anatomy.
|Frontal or Coronal Plane||The frontal plane divides the front and back halves of the entire body.|
|Median or Midsagittal Plane||The median plane divides the left and right sides of the entire body.|
|Transverse or Horizontal Plane||The transverse plane divides the body at the waist (top and bottom halves of the body).|
