Cranial or Cephalic
e.g. The cranial, or cephalic, border of the pelvis is superior to the thigh.
Toward the body's longitudinal axis.
e.g. The medial surfaces of the thighs may be in contact; moving medially from the arm across the chest surface brings you to the sternum.
Away from the body's longitudinal axis.
e.g. The thigh articulates with the lateral surface of the pelvis; moving laterally from the nose brings you to the eyes.
Toward an attached base.
e.g. The thigh is proximal to the foot; moving proximally from the wrist brings you to the elbow.
Away from an attached base.
e.g. The fingers are distal to the wrist; moving distally from the elbow brings you to the wrist.
At, near, or relatively close to the body surface.
e.g. The scalp is superficial to the skull.
