ACR/SBI's Monticciolo Criticizes USPSTF Mammography Guidelines

In a letter-to-the-editor of the Washington Post (1/15, Monticciolo), Debra Monticciolo, chair of the Breast Imaging Commission of the American College of Radiology, criticized the US Preventive Services Task Force mammography guidelines. She wrote, “Congress is justified in delaying implementation of the task force’s recommendations so that breast cancer experts can review them and the process that created them.” According to Monticciolo, “Rushing into a policy that even its supporters admit could result in thousands of unnecessary deaths each year makes no sense for women, their providers or anyone else.”
