Abstract

The American Cancer Society (ACS) convened a workshop in March 1997 to consider new scientific findings related to breast cancer screening and to determine whether these findings warrant a change in the existing ACS guidelines. The meeting was timed so that participants could benefit from new data related to screening women aged 40 to 49 years. A recommendation based on the new data and subsequently approved by the ACS Board of Directors is reported.
