Double spot compression view

Last revised by Andrew Murphy on 23 Mar 2023

A double spot compression view is obtained by focal compression of both sides of the breast to produce higher spatial and contrast resolution. This is made possible due to the increased amount of breast thinning and a significant decreased incidence of blurring because of decreased exposure time.  

The double compression technique is performed with an additional device that consists of a spot cone incorporated in the top of a plane support, together with a standard spot compression paddle.
