Sagittal Plane IV

So lastly, and this is actually quite similar to the sagittal plane, is the coronal plane. In this case the plane of the ultrasound is the essentially parallel to the bed. The indicator is towards the patient’s head, and if you really think about this being towards your left, you’re actually looking from the floor upwards, which is a little bit more difficult to envision. But again I’m thinking of looking from the bottom up and the indicator to your left or the patient’s head.
