Human anatomical planes

Anatomical planes are used in gross anatomy, clinical imaging and histology to define the direction of viewing in the standard anatomical position.

  • coronal plane - (frontal plane) is any vertical plane that divides the body into ventral and dorsal sections.
  • sagittal plane - vertical plane which passes from anterior to posterior, dividing the body into right and left halves. Midsagittal (median) plane is located in the midline, all other planes are parasagittal planes.
  • transverse plane - (cross-section, horizontal plane, axial plane, or transaxial plane) is plane that divides the body into superior and inferior parts and is perpendicular to the coronal and sagittal planes.
