To determine whether one-view mammography would be sufficiently diagnostic, 106 cases of breast cancer diagnosed by film mammography or xeromammography were reviewed independently by two radiologists. Detection rates were analyzed for the lateral view, the craniocaudal view, and then both views combined. The lateral projection resulted in an accuracy rate of 97%. Errors in false-negative reports in either projection were traced to their source.
