SEVEN ORGANIZATIONAL APPROACHES 2 Seven Organizational Approaches The human body is studied in several ways. Each approaches the body from different points of view. There are seven different organizational approaches to studying the body. These approaches include the following body planes and body directions, body cavities, quadrants and regions, anatomy and physiology, microscopic to macroscopic, body systems, and medical specialties. Body Planes and Directional Approach When studying the body using the body planes and directions approach, the body is divided into sections; front to back, right and left and top and bottom by the use of the sagittal, coronal, and the transverse planes. This approach is used when studying certain organs and their surrounding functions. It is also used for studying specific areas within the body such as the lungs, brain, or joints and tendons. Body directions represent movement away from or toward these planes (Turley, 2010). This approach is used when performing electromagnetic radiation, computerized tomography scans and magnetic resonance imaging diagnostic techniques.
