The United States Preventive Services Task Force published its final mammography screening guidelines on Monday, January 11. The Task Force confirms mammography is an important tool for women ages 40 to 74 and recommends the following:

• Women ages 50 to 74 need to be screened regularly.
• Women in their 40s need to make an individual decision about screening in partnership with their doctors.

Lisa Newman, MD, director of the breast cancer program and research center at Henry Ford Health System, and chair of the MCC’s Breast Cancer Advisory Committee, says “the committee currently recommends annual mammography beginning at age 40.”
