In the Editorial entitled “Breast Cancer Screening: Toward Informed Decisions” published in the April 2, 2014, issue of JAMA (2014;311:1298-1299. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.2494), incorrect data were reported. In the third paragraph from the end of the Editorial, the second sentence should have read “Telling a woman that 10 of 10 000 women in their 50s who are screened annually for a decade will avoid a breast cancer death because of mammography1 is likely to have a different effect than describing outcomes for the other 9990 women not benefiting (eg, not avoiding a breast cancer death).” This article was corrected online.
