The planes of the body are the sagittal plane (or the lateral plane), the coronal plane (or the frontal plane), and the transverse plane. The sagittal plane/the lateral plane divides the body into right and left sides, right and left regions, by running through the body from back to front.
The relative position of the body is evaluated according to the plane under consideration. The planes pass through the body and dissect it into different sections. So, any physical activity or an exercise routine can be described on the basis of these anatomical planes.
Applications of Body Planes 1 Medical imaging. These anatomical planes have great significance in medical imaging techniques, for example, MRI scans, CT scans, Sonography, and PET scans. 2 Motion. These anatomical planes are used to describe the action axis performed by the body. … 3 Embryological application. …Body Planes Diagram Diagram - Chart - diagrams and charts with labels.
