Upper limbs hanging to the sides d.Palms face forward e.Any time you refer to a subject you always assume anatomic position 2.Supine: subject laying on back face upward 3.Prone: subject lying on belly face downward Directional Terms: allow explanation of where body parts in relation to one another 1.Superior: - Toward head, above - Aka cranial cephalic - Example: shoulder is superior to the pelvis 2.Inferior: - Away from head, below - Aka caudal (tail) - Example: abdomen is inferior to the neck 3.Ventral: - Front side of the body - Aka anterior - Example: the sternum is anterior to the spine 4.Dorsal: - Back side of the body - Aka posterior - Example: the heart is posterior to the ribcage 5.Medial: - Toward the midline of the body, the inner side of - Example: the nose is medial to the eye 6.Lateral: - Away from the midline, on the other side of - Example: the ear is lateral to the eye 7.Intermediate : - Between a more medial and a more lateral structure - Example: the collarbone is intermediate between the sternum and shoulder 8.Proximal: - Closer to the point of attachment of a limb to the body trunk - Example: the elbow is proximal to the wrist 9.Distal: - Further from the point of attachment of a limb to the body trunk - Example: the knee is distal to the thigh 10. Superficial: - Toward the body’s surface - Aka external - Example: skeletal muscles are superficial to bones 11. Deep: - Away from the body’s surface - Aka internal - Example: the lungs are deep to the ribs 12. Bilateral: - Two- sided, affecting both sides equally - Example: we are bilaterally symmetrical (we are symmetrical about our midline) 13. Ipsilateral - Located on the same side of the body - Example: right leg and arm 14. Contralateral - On opposite sides of the body - Example: right arm and left leg (or right leg and left arm) Body Regions and Planes 1.Two main regions a.Axial (head, neck, trunk) b.Appendicular (appendages, limbs) 2.Three planes a.Sagittal: vertical plane that divides the body into right and left halves i. Midsagittal: equal ii. Parasagittal: unequal b.Frontal (vertical, coronal): plane that divided the body into anterior and posterior halves c.
