Advances in imaging methods and development of multiplanar reformatted images enabled coronal reconstruction, in which ureter stone size can be calculated on the coronal plane. For planning treatment, coronal measurements provide more reliable results in predicting spontaneous passage compared to axial measurements.
The rod entry point position in the coronal plane was 2.94 [+ or -] 1.12 mm (range, 0.79-4.91 mm) medial and 6.01 [+ or -] 2.09 mm (range, 2.49-9.51 mm) anterior to the deepest point of the intercondylar notch in Xiao et al .'s study.[5] However, use of the deepest point of the intercondylar notch in that study meant that the center of the femoral trochlear groove may have been difficult to identify precisely during an operation.
This finding supports that of previous studies (13, 16) and suggests coronal plane socket stability with lower socket trim lines is possible.

In 4 subjects (numbers 2,4,6, and 8), an increased ROM in the coronal plane corresponded to an increase in the vertical axis but also to a higher forward shift of the trunk.
The reliability of the measurement process was evaluated using the following measures: total volume, cast geometry in the sagittal and coronal planes, and the area of the serial transverse sections.

Condyle morphology was categorized both in the sagittal and coronal plane [4].
A coronal plane is usually also needed to exclude laryngeal penetration, whereas a view in the axial plane is not possible.
The quantum shoulder positioner allows for superior to inferior adjustments to range from 4'3" to 7'0" patient height, making it the only chair on the market useful in the pediatric population [figure 3] Coronal plane adjustment capability allows the surgeon to rotate the head away from the operative shoulder for surgical exposure [figure 4].
This revealed a normal, male 46, XY karyotype A repeat ultrasound scan at 23 weeks of gestation showed a shortened penis that was abnormally curved between the two scrotal folds in the coronal plane. An inform consent was taken from the patient.
Results show that the main significant differences in joint angles occur at the hip (in all three planes) and between the lower lumbar region and the pelvis (in the coronal plane).
