An axillary view (also known as a "Cleopatra view“) is a type of supplementary mammographic view. It is an exaggerated craniocaudal view for better imaging of the lateral portion of the breast to the axillary tail. This projection is performed whenever we want to show a lesion seen only in the axillary tail on the MLO view. An optimal axillary view require to be clearly displayed the most lateral portion of the breast including the axillary tail, as well the pectoral muscle and the nipple in profile.
