I had my baseline screening done today, and my right breast was imaged first with two images. When she did my left, she did a different image in-between the first and last. I asked her why, and she said she doesn't read them and wanted to get a picture of the outside of my breast. Is this normal?? Everything I am reading says only 4 pictures taken during a screening.

I wouldn't be concerned. It can just be she wanted to get a different angle or one of the films just didn't come out great.
