What is Sagittal Plane?
A vertical plane passing through the standing body from front to back. The mid-sagital, or median, plane splits the body into left and right halves.
Sagittal Plane: Divides into left and right pieces
- Midsagittal: Divides into left and right along the midline, creating equal halves. This is the mirror image plane.
- Parasagittal: Any sagittal plane parallel to the midsagittal and off the midline
