Picture archival communication systems (PACS) have made the interpretation process much quicker and streamlined. Similarly, improvements in software packages have allowed manipulation of data to be much easier, especially for three-dimensional (3D)volume data sets. Appropriate window levels can be more easily manipulated with PACS or workstations so that the internal characteristics and borders of a lesion may be better displayed.

Elimination of cardiac motion also often drives the choice. Sagittal and axial planes have the advantage of corresponding to the mammogram so that direct correlation is possible. Additionally, scanning either in the sagittal or axial planes allows demonstration of ductal pathology, which can be truncated if a coronal plane is used.
