Anatomical references

This section will outline some basic anatomic terms of the pig.  IMPORTANT -- throughout the site, when we use "left" (e.g., left ventricle), we are referring to the pig's left. In some cases, we will refer to regions of the photo and have attempted to make it clear that this is "left of the photo", which may be different from the pig's left.

Regions of the pig

Anterior and posterior

Dorsal and ventral

Medial and lateral

Proximal and distal
