XCCM view

An XCCM view is a supplementary mammographic view. It is a type of exaggerated cranio-caudal view. It is particularly good for imaging the medial portion of the breast. In this view, the medial portion of the breast is placed forward. A negative 15° tube tilt is suggested.

An optimal XCCM view requires the most medial portion of the breast and the nipple in profile to be clearly displayed.
