   The RAO/Caudal view is not a conventional view for imaging the RCA. However it may be occasionally needed when the mid portion of a tortuous artery cannot be clearly "laid out" in the other views. An animation demonstrating this view is shown on the bottom left. Immediately below is the angulation of the Image Intensifier (II) and camera assembly that is used to obtain the specific view. 
  In the Right Anterior Oblique or RAO view, the camera is rotated along a vertical axis towards the patient's right. Please remember that the ventricular septum lies in a plane between the right shoulder and the left nipple. Thus, in the RAO/Caudal view, the camera "looks" at the outline of the septum from below. The atrio-ventricular plane is seen on edge, since it sits roughly at right angles to the ventricular septum.
