Define medial or lateral

1.Medial: closer to the median plane
2.Lateral: further from the median plane or respectively

1

Define Cranial

Toward the head

2

Define Caudal

Toward the tail

3

Define Ventral

Toward the ground

4

What head term corresponds to the "cranial" to the rest of the body

Rostral

5

For what is the term dorsal used?

Surface of the body away from the ground and the surface below the proximal carpus and the tarsus directed toward the head (surface opposite the palmer/plantar

6

What surfaces below the "top" (proximal end) of the carpus/ tarsus as directed toward the tail or ground

Palmer/plantar

7

Define proximal and distal

Proximal: part closer to the point of attachment to the trunk
Distal: farther from

8

What is the term peripheral used

A part distal to the point of origin or near the surface

9

Define axial and abaxial

Axial/Abaxial: closer to/farther from the longitudinal axis of the limb

10

Where is the axis of the limb in relation to the digits

Between the 3rd and 4th digits

11

Define external or superficial and internal or deep

Closer to/further from the outer surface of a structure, respectively

12

Define Sagittal plane, median or med-Sagittal plane

Sagittal: dives body into unequal right and left parts
Midsaggital: equal right and left parts

13

Define transverse plane or cross section

Plane divides the body into cranial and caudal parts or cuts a limb at right angle to its long axis

14

What are sections? List two

Cuts through the plane of the body: Sagittal section , transverse or cross section

15

List the human terms and where they correctly use the veterinary anatomy

1.Anterior: cranial on limb and rostral on face and ventral on body
2. Posterior: caudal on limbs and head dorsal on body
3.superior and inferior : dorsal ventral
4. Correctly used for eyes and certain head structures
