English term or phrase: the image plane is normal to
The orthogonal geometry is for working with films where the two (or more) projections used have a common isocenter, and the image plane is normal to the X-ray path.
J'apprécierais toute suggestion, je ne comprend pas en effet le terme de "normal".

Merci d'avance.
