 The video clip on the left was obtained in the cardiac cath lab as the right coronary angiogram was recorded in the AP projection. The movie clip demonstrate both a "video" representation (coronary angios, as they appear on playback in the cath lab) and the "cine" or cineangiographic equivalent as seen on the developed film. The two views correspond to the negative and positive prints of photography film. You can toggle back and forth between the two views by clicking on the respective button. You can also click a button to see a labeled freeze frame of the coronary angiogram.
    In the AP view, the RCA begins close to the spine and then runs roughly parallel to it. The right ventricular, acute marginal, posterior descending and postero-lateral branches come off the RCA at and angle.

  The photograph on the top left shows the x-ray tube, image intensifier/camera assembly in the AP projection with no caudal or cranial tilt. The photograph on the right shows the camera's view of the patient's torso and heart. The size of the latter has been exaggerated for purposes of illustration.
