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.

The coronal suture divides the body into front and back halves while the sagittal suture divides the body into right and left halves. There is also a transverse plane which divides the body into upper and lower halves. This approach can be used in things like an MRI. If you need to see the left half of a person’s brain or heart then you would need to divide the body by the midsagittal plane. Body cavities One way to study the body is to think of the different cavities contained within the body. These cavities include bones, muscles, and organs which are located inside one of six different cavities; cranial, spinal, thoracic, mediastinum, abdominal or pelvic cavities.

    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.
