mediolateral view

(redirected from ML view)

mediolateral view

A standard view taken from the centre of the chest outward. If no MLO projection is taken, the mediolateral view is generally preferred to the lateromedial view, given that the lateral side of the breast—where the pathological changes are most commonly found—is then closest to the film.

For example, if a nonpalpable, suspicious, hyperdense, irregular, 1.5-cm right breast mass is seen laterally on the CC view, above the PNL on the MLO view, but below the PNL on the ML view, it is located in the right, lower, outer quadrant.
The end of the line predicts the location of the mass on the ML view. In Figure 13, the mass is located medially on the CC view and below the PNL on the MLO view.
