Anatomical Position & Directional Terms

Simple lists of anatomical terms fill the slides in this collection. It begins by explaining the general anatomic position and then goes into directional, body plane, and body cavity terms. The separate regions are categorized as head, neck, thorax, abdominal, trunk, and extremities. No pictures are included, so ideally you would have an anatomy mannequin handy as you go through this vocabulary with your class.
