Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
Do you have suggested references for mammography screening guidelines?
Carolyn Vachani RN, MSN, AOCN, OncoLink's Nurse Educator, responds:
The American Cancer Society provides guidelines for screening mammography, which were updated in 2007 to include information about women at higher risk. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force also provides recommendations for breast cancer screening. These were last updated in 2002.
Jul 28, 2014 - Despite recommended guidelines, a number of women who received chest radiation for a childhood cancer have not had mammography screening for breast cancer in the previous two years, according to the results of a study published in the Jan. 28 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
