Anatomical Terminology

Before we get into the following learning units, which will provide more detailed discussion of topics on different human body systems, it is necessary to learn some useful terms for describing body structure. Knowing these terms will make it much easier for us to understand the content of the following learning units. Three groups of terms are introduced here: directional terms, terms describing planes of the body, and terms describing body cavities.

 

  • Directional Terms
  • Planes of the Body
  • Body Cavities
