Trunk (anatomy)

The hull (Latin truncus, trunk ') is anatomically, the central portion of the body without a head, neck, limbs and tail. In humans, the body will be referred to as trunk.

The hull is divided into four different sections:

  • Chest (thorax ) or chest ( pectus )
  • Belly (abdomen)
  • Back ( dorsum )
  • Pelvis ( pelvis )

These individual sections are ( pectoris Regiones, Regiones abdominis, Regiones dorsi and Regiones pelvis) in regions further subdivided. The narrowest part of the trunk is called the waist.
