Axia College Material Appendix D Seven Organizational Approaches A. Use the matrix below to describe each approach to organizing information about the body. Discuss how each approach can be used. Approach Describe the approach How might the approach be used? Body planes and directions Used to divide the body into sections: front, back, right, left, top and bottom. The mov e ment away from or towards those planes is the direction. This approach might be used when taking X -rays or MRI . Body cavities The body cavities are surrounded by muscle and bone to help support and protect the organs and structures within that cavity. This approach might be used when describing an infection or any other issue that may affect a certain part of the body: gallstones can be described by complaints of pain occurring in the abdominal cavity. Quadrant and regions This approach further specifies the areas of the body. Like body planes, this approach splits up those planes into regions and quadrants: Right upper Quadrant, Right lower quadrant, Left upper quadrant, and left lower quadrant.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
