Body Planes Practice Test – Sagittal, Frontal, Transverse

Those who are studying medical terminology, healthcare-related professions, exercise physiology, and other career paths that involve caring for people may discover that learning body parts and positions can become overwhelming. Mentally splitting the body into smaller portions may help to divide the information, making it easier to pinpoint specific locations. Many terms related to body planes are used frequently in these professions, so having a solid knowledge of the body planes can be quite helpful. This practice test includes twenty questions related to body planes.
