The frontal plane divides the body from front to back

Answer: True. A coronal plane is a vertical plane that divides the body into anterior and posterior parts.

Explanation: Anatomical descriptions are based on four (4) imaginary planes that intersect the body in the anatomical position. These planes are median, sagittal, coronal and transverse planes.

The median plane divides the body into right and left halves.

The sagittal plane passes through the body parallel to the median plane.

The coronal or frontal plane divides the body into anterior (front) and posterior (back) parts.

The transverse plane divides the body into superior (upper) and inferior (lower) parts.
