The terms are interchangeable. The horizontal plane (also known as the transverse plane) passes through the body horizontally to create top and bottom segments of the body. There could be any number of horizontal planes, but there is only one cardinal horizontal plane, which divides the body into equal top and bottom halves. The frontal plane (also known as the lateral plane) passes from one side of the body to the other, creating a front side and a back side of the body. Again, there could be any number of frontal planes, but there is only one cardinal frontal plane, which divides the body into equal front and back halves.
