coronal plane

A vertical anatomical plane that divides the standing body into front and rear halves. A plane lying in the direction of the side-to-side CORONAL SUTURE of the skull.

cor·o·nal plane

(kōr'ŏ-năl plān)
A plane parallel to the long axis of the body in the anatomic (i.e., upright) position that divides the body into front and back parts; perpendicular to the sagittal and horizontal planes.

The mean stone size on axial plane was 4.72[+ or -]1.55 mm and the mean stone size on coronal plane was 4.75[+ or -]1.84 mm.
(a), (b), and (c) Lesion in the axial, sagittal, and coronal planes. The above row shows the lesion in warped moving images, while the below row shows the lesion in fixed images.
In the example shown (a rectified male cast), orientation in the coronal plane is achieved by aligning the posterior trim line of the socket horizontally.
Glottal closure was best seen in a coronal plane (87%), whereas the vallecular and piriform sinus filling were best detected in an axial plane (95%, as printed in bold type).
A case study of a golfer with LBP showed that decreasing the amount of spinal motion in the axial, sagittal, and coronal planes during golf swings can reduce compressive and torsional loads on the lumbar spine, thus reducing LBP.
The current gold standard for the assessment of any suspected vascular anomaly of the middle ear is high-resolution contrast-enhanced CT in both the axial and coronal planes. Yet even this may fail to differentiate between a highly vascularized glomus tumor and another vascular anomaly.
First, the direction of projection was at an angle of 90[degrees] to the coronal plane, and so the effect of flexion of the knee joint was not taken into account.
One of the most important measurements is the "Skeletal Medial-Lateral (ML)" because it defines the ML dimension of the socket brim that intimately encapsulates the pelvis and provides the necessary coronal plane stability to the remnant femur and pelvis that enables comfortable and effective gait [4-8].
In the image section of the knee joint in the coronal planes it was observed that fibular collateral ligament did not have connection with lateral meniscus (Fig.
CONVENTIONAL MR PROTOCOL: The MR protocol included the following sequences: a 3-plane localizer; T1WI (TR/TE/TI: 2000/12/859) in axial plane; FLAIR images (fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery images; TR/TE/TI: 9000/81/2500) in axial & coronal planes; and T2WI (TR/TE: 5600/100) in axial, coronal & sagittal planes.
WE-MPRAGE images in both the transverse and coronal planes
The initial workup and preoperative planning are guided by CT in the axial and coronal planes and by MRI when the latter is not contraindicated, as it was in our patient.
