Recommendations differ from various organizations for breast cancer screening with mammography. The differences for women of average risk is the age at which to initiate mammography (40, 45, or 50 years), and the time screening interval (1 v. 2 years based on age). Policy and guidelines for practice are not harmonized. The controversy results in confusion for both providers and patients.
