7, flip angle: 90) on the axial plane, turbospin echo fat-saturated T2 w sequence (TR: 3300, TE:74, flip angle: 150) on the coronal plane, and turbospin echo T2 w sequence (TR: 6030, TE:103, flip angle: 150) on the sagittal plane.
On the axial plane, volar and dorsal radioulnar ligaments were well recognized as a band of low signal intensity extending from the distal radius to the distal ulna along the volar and dorsal side of the TFC disk [Figure 3] and [Figure 5].
The possible reason might be low contrast resolution for deep pelvic structures and imaging in the axial plane which could not accurately depict the craniocaudally oriented insertion.

Firstly, on the distal tibia plafond, the turning point of posterior malleolus and medial malleolus (point A), the turning point of medial malleolus and anterior ankle (point B) and the top point of the lateral margin (point C) were selected to define the cross-section (plane ABC) which corresponded to the axial plane at the level of the plafond.
Once the tumour had been visualised on conventional T2-weighted imaging, diffusion-weighted images were obtained in the axial plane that contained the largest tumour cross-section, using b-values of 500 and 1 000 [s/mm.
The nasopharyngeal minimum perpendicular area, however, is not easy to find, insofar as the software tool locates and calculates the minimum area parallel to the axial plane, instead of the minimum area perpendicular to the airway.
Anatomic variations of the patella in the axial plane, Wiberg 3 or "Hunter's cap" variations (6) for example, can be associated with bony tilting and a relatively flat, congruent patellofemoral articulation.
Crystallization of minerals such as quartz, muscovite, chlorite, biotite, feldspar, occurred during the development of F1 folds and are preferably oriented along the axial plane foliation S1 and, therefore, are related to the D1 deformation.
The technique used was as follows: Using a General Electric LogiQ e ultrasound system with a 10-12 mHz linear array probe, the proximal border of the procedure area was defined by visualizing the radiolunate joint with the probe in the anatomical sagittal plane, and drawing a line on the volar forearm skin along the intersection of the anatomic axial plane at the radiolunate joint, with the skin (line PR, Figure 1).
A single traverse of eight drill holes at Murphy South, combined with Stage I drilling and geophysical inversion modelling, suggests that a large body of magnetite gneiss occurs in this area as a large overturned isoclinal fold, with a south southeast dipping axial plane.
The radial head may be considered as a multifunctional conjoint stabilizer of the elbow because it serves to check instability in three planes: the coronal plane as it works with the medial collateral ligament to prevent valgus instability; the saggital plane as it works mainly with the posterolateral ligamentous structures, the coronoid process and the medial ligaments to prevent posterior dislocation; and in the axial plane as it works with the interosseous membrane to prevent the shaft of the radius riding up.
