Appendicular- Appendages or outer extremities B . Body Planes 1. Frontal (coronal) plane- lies vertically and divides the body into the anterior and posterior parts. 2. Transverse (horizontal) plane- runs from right to left, dividing into superior and inferior parts. 3. Sagittal planes- are vertical, like frontal, divide the body into right and left parts. a. Median plane or Midsagittal- lies in the midline b. Parasagittal- offset from the midline 4. Oblique sections - Cuts made along any plane that lies diagonally between the horizontal and vertical.
