Incorrect Data in 2 Tables

JAMA. 2016;315(13):1406. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.3404

In the Special Communication entitled “Breast Cancer Screening for Women at Average Risk: 2015 Guideline Update From the American Cancer Society,” published in the October 20, 2015, issue of JAMA,1 incorrect data were given in some cells of Tables 3 and 4. In Table 3, the exposure for the randomized clinical trials row should have been invitation to screening mammography. In the first row of Table 4, the absolute breast cancer risk originally provided was not the 5-year risk for that age group. This article has been corrected online.
