Question
Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
Do you have suggested references for mammography screening guidelines?


Answer

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.
