  8. Opposite or dorsal; pertaining to the belly/underside of a quadruped
  9. Position away from mid-line, plane of structure
  10. Pertaining to the back area of a quadruped or denoting a position more toward the back
  11. Nearest to center of body relative to another body part

    dorsal plane
  17. Same as paramedian plane, plane dividing body into unequal right and left portions; parallel to median plane
    sagittal plane
  18. Movement of a limb away from median line or middle of body
  19. Plane perpendicular to median plane; divides body into cranial & caudal parts; also organ or limb at right angle to long axis
    Transverse plane
