Each are important to understand the complex systems and workings of the human body, The seven organizational approaches are body planes and direction, body cavities, quadrants and regions, anatomy and physiology, microscopic-to-macroscopic, body systems, and medical specialty. Besides the importance of just understanding the human body each can be used when applying knowledge to practical use in the health care industry. Body planes and direction approach is the division of the body into sections from front to back, right and left, and top to bottom by the use of the midsaggital plane, coronal plane, and the transverse plane. This is addition to movement away from or towards these planes. This approach is often used in describing what is happening in the body and where.

It is also useful when reading important scans like a CAT scan which provides cross sectional views of all types of tissue. Knowing what plane a specific image was taken can help diagnose and locate conditions like cancer, blood clots, and kidney disease.

Body cavities help divide the body into sections or compartments and help give organs a specific “place” in the body. This approach is often used when studying a specific organ like the brain in the cranial cavity or an entire system like the gastrointestinal system which is in the abdominopelvic cavity. Body cavities can also be useful in observing how a disease affects numerous organs with in
