Coronary angiography requires multiple separate views to completely examine coronary anatomy and resolve potential vessel overlap. Several separate sequential injections of left (LCA) and right coronary arteries (RCA) are shown. Here, "postero - anterior" (PA), "left anterior oblique" (LAO), and "right anterior oblique" (RAO) views of a normal coronary tree are provided. The "Left Ventriculogram" is an RAO view with direct contrast injection into the cavity to examine myocardial function.
