mediolateral 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.
