English term or phrase: Sagittal - Cornoal - Transverse
Ho bisogno di una conferma: Transverse, non sarà mica "assiale"?? In opposizione a sagittale e coronale??

Prima avevo postato una domanda su "transverse cross sections".

Qualcuno può darmi delucidazioni in merito?

io userei comunque "trasversali"
Explanation:
Non sostituirei "trasversali" con "assiali". Ti riporto qualche citazione:

(o TAC), tecnica radiodiagnostica che consente, mediante l'intervento di un
elaboratore elettronico opportunamente programmato, di ottenere immagini
radiologiche relative a sottili strati (di spessore inferiore a 1 cm) delle
strutture corporee indagate, ricavate secondo piani assiali (cioè
trasversali rispetto all'asse corporeo maggiore).

Discussion of the strategy for mastery
A. Identification of a multi-sectional plane (Fig.10)
1. Transverse (axial) plane is perpendicular to the median.
2. The coronal plane is parallel to the midaxiallary line.
3. The sagittal plane is parallel to the median.
4. Off axis means slanted or oblique section of one of the other planes.

Transverse (X-Y) Coronal (X-Z) Sagittal (Y-Z)
Transverse (or axial) sections form a series of circumferential slices -
rather like slicing the body into a series of pancakces and stacking them
atop one another. Transverse sections run top to bottom (superior to
inferior). Your chin is inferior to your forehead but superior to your
knees. The terms cranial (as in the cranium of your head) and caudal (latin
for 'tail') may be used interchangeably with superior and inferior. You can
go through the entire body in this animation of transverse sections (1.63MB
GIF).
Coronal sections follow front to back, as though cutting through a corona,
or halo, around the head. In medical terms anterior means front, and
posterior means back. A similar group of terms includes ventral (front), and
dorsal (back). The following animation runs anteriorly from the nose to the
posterior of the head. (137K GIF or 300K Quicktime movie).
Sagittal sections follow from one side of the body to the other - left to
right, or right to left. In medical terms lateral means 'outside', and
medial 'inside' in the sense of lying in the middle. Your nose is medial
(and inferior!) to your eyes, while your ears lie lateral to both your eyes
and nose. The following animation traverses through the body from the right
shoulder to the left, and back again. (600K GIF or 300K Quicktime Movie).

Since normal tissue toxicity is always the dose limiting factor for
radiation therapy, it is nice to be able to evaluate a 3-D model of the
patient and the tumor prior to initiating radiation therapy. However, normal
tissue should not be spared if it results in inadequate dose delivery to the
tumor. These enhanced treatment planning systems also allow reconstruction
of the CT data into transverse (axial), sagittal, and coronal modes, rather
than the traditional axial view used with older 2-d planning systems.

Grazie mille, è proprio quello di cui avevo bisogno!

Dunque mi pare di capire che assiale e trasversale siano sinonimi... "Transverse sections run top to bottom (superior to inferior). Your chin is inferior to your forehead but superior to your knees." "Transverse (axial) plane is perpendicular to the median."

Che solievo... Comunque lascio trasversale come suggerisci tu, non sono del tutto sicuro che siano sinonimi...

Ciao e grazie di nuovo!
