What is: Anterior

Anterior And Posterior

The anterior side of the body is also known as the ventral side. It is the front of the body containing the face, chest, abs, quads, and shins. In the figure above, the skeleton on the right shows the anterior side of the body with some of the skeletal musculature. You can use the word anterior to describe where on your body something is, like a pain, for example.
