Does direction superior means front towards the front of the body?
Asked in Skeletal System
Is your spine superior to your sternum?
superior, in anatomical terms means closer to the top of the body, and inferior means closer to the bottom of the body. eg, your neck is superior to your pelvis. anterior means towards the front of the body, posterior towards the back. eg, your sternum is anterior of your scapular. so, 'is your spine superior to your sternum' is not correct. this actually mixes the terminology of superior/inferior and anterior/posterior. your spine cannot be 'higher' than your sternum, it can however be posterior to your sternum. Hope this helps!
