If a radiologist interpreting a mammogram was not able to view either a region of the breast completely or a possible abnormality completely, the radiologist may recommend additional imaging, including the use of spot compression, to help make a more complete evaluation.

A spot compression mammogram is a type of mammogram in which only a small area of the breast is compressed (by a small plate or cone) during the procedure.

The purpose of a spot compression mammogram is to achieve better imaging of a particular region of the breast.The fact that you are being called back, is very common,sometimes is just the skin that has folded over and looks like a shadow.The spot compression will determine if that's the case.Best wishes
