Radiographic Positioning Help

Question: Where would the film be placed for a left anterior oblique view of the thorax?


  • The views used in radiographic images are named for the part of the body that is nearest the film, for example, anterior, right lateral, left anterior oblique. 
  • Alternatively, the terms anteroposterior and postero-anterior are used when the x-rays have passed through the object from front to back or from back to front respectively. 

So, in LAO, Film is kept on the left and front of the chest obliquely
