A longitudinal plane dividing the body into anterior and posterior portions is a frontal plane, also known as a: coronal plane
A horizontal plane divides the body into superior and inferior parts and is also known as a: transverse plane
A midsagittal plane divides the body into equal right and left halves, but if the halves are unequal the plane is said to be: parasagittal
