1. Relating to both front and rear.
2. In x-ray imaging, describing the direction of the beam through the patient (projection) from anterior to posterior, for example, an A-P projection of the abdomen; or the direction of view (A-P view) when a film is viewed as if one is facing the patient (anterior to posterior) regardless of projection.

In front of the pineal foramen the parietal is ornamented with numerous ridges oriented anteroposteriorly, which are located just posterior to the premaxilla-parietal suture and obscure the contact with the frontals (Figure 3A).
The spinal cord is flattened anteroposteriorly, especially in the lumbar region but remaining anatomy is cylindrical.
Intraorally, a solitary swelling was seen on the right posterior half of palate of size 1 cm 1.2 cm approximately, extending anteroposteriorly from mesial of 17 to the junction of the hard and soft palate and mediolaterally from palatal gingiva to 0.8 cm away from mid-palatine raphae.
These, in turn, branch multiple times to form anteroposteriorly oriented smaller and thinner ridges.

The swelling was firm in consistency, nontender, and of approximately 5 x 4 cm, extending superoinferiorly from the infraorbital ridge to 2 cm above the inferior border of the mandible and anteroposteriorly from the right corner of the mouth to 1.5 cm anterior to the tragus (Figure 1(a)).
Without changing alignment, the planes were moved anteroposteriorly (representing different resection thicknesses) to visually inspect how they looked on the models and if there were any landmarks to which they specifically aligned.
Higher levels of terrestrial mobility are associated with more anteroposteriorly strengthened femora (greater [I.sub.x]/[I.sub.y]) and with greater CSA, bending and torsional rigidity, and more elliptical tibial cross sections (greater [I.sub.max/I.sub.min]) (Holt 2003; Macintosh et al.
Intra-oral examination revealed a firm and nodular swelling present on the right buccal vestibule extending from the 1st premolar to the 2nd molar region anteroposteriorly.
The positron emission tomography (PET) from vertex of skull to thighs and computed tomography (CT) of head, neck, chest, and abdomen/pelvis without contrast were only significant for a hypermetabolic retropharyngeal soft tissue mass measuring 3 cm x 1 cm anteroposteriorly.
