Transverse I

So here’s an example of the transverse or axial plane. The way I like to think about this is to always keep the indicator, which is going to be on screen left, to my left, and that way you can just think about taking that plane that you’re cutting through and placing it on the screen. So when you’re scanning a patient in the transverse or axial plane, you’re basically looking from the feet upwards - and again, keeping that indicator to your left which will be the patient’s right.
