Raya and Hernandez-Gonzalez (1998) suggested the sagittal plane of a rostrum sagittal section (RSS) as the optimal plane for aging common octopus (Octopus vulgaris), and longitudinal increments deposited in RSS were also observed to have periodic light and dark bands.

The characteristic signs suggestive of ACC are: moderate distension of the occipital ventricle and the ventricular communications; absence of the spectrum giving rise to an upward displacement of the third ventricle shown in the anterior coronal section (especially in transvaginal ultrasonography); radial position of the fissures on the internal side of the cerebral hemisphere seen on the sagittal section; the absence in color coded Doppler of the pericallosal artery normally characterized by a semicircular vessel observable on the median sagittal section.
The imaging plane was set in the sagittal section and T2-weighted images (T2WI) were acquired using a fast spin-echo (FSE) sequence, which is routinely ordered in spine MRI.
