Lateromedial view

Assoc Prof Craig Hacking and Radswiki et al.

The lateromedial view (or LM view) is a supplementary mammographic view where the bucky is placed up against the sternum and the and film is taken in a true lateral projection. This view allows the medial breast to be closest to the film. This view allows the medial breast to be more carefully evaluated.

The lateromedial view shows less breast tissue and pectoral muscle than the mediolateral oblique (MLO) view. This is also true of the mediolateral view and is the reason that these additional views are used for problem solving.
