Seventy-five spot compression views of equivocally suspicious lesions detected at routine mammographic examination of 72 women were reviewed in this retrospective study. Sixty-five of the 75 lesions appeared less suspicious on spot compression views, two did not change, and eight appeared more suspicious. Biopsy findings confirmed that the eight more suspicious lesions were cancer. The adjunctive use of spot compression helped characterize equivocal findings seen on routine mammographic views and improved the accuracy of mammographic interpretation.
