XCCL view

Dr Henry Knipe and Radswiki et al.

An XCCL view is a supplementary mammographic view. It is a type of exaggerated cranio-caudal view. It is particularly good for imaging the lateral aspect of the breast. 

It is often done when a lesion is suspected on a MLO view but cannot be seen on the CC view. In this view, the lateral aspect of the breast is placed forward. One rationale of performing this view is that many cancers are located in the lateral aspect of the breast.
