New Mammography Saves Lives Materials Available


October 2015 offers new resources to help radiologists explain to referring providers and patients why women should continue to get annual mammograms starting at age 40. The site also clarifies differences between recent screening recommendations from the American Cancer Society, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, the ACR, and the Society of Breast Imaging.

New online materials include the following:

• A patient brochure explaining benefits and risks of screening mammography and detailing why women should seek annual mammograms starting at age 40.
• A brochure for medical professionals, outlining scientific support for starting screening at age 40 and explaining why they should continue to advise women to start at 40.
• A joint ACR–SBI press release and talking points for radiologists on new mammography recommendations from the American Cancer Society versus ACR and Society of Breast Imaging recommendations.
