The American College of Radiology (ACR) is lauding the release of a report by the President's Cancer Panel that highlights the need for cancer screening, especially in light of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report notes that "while many in the United States benefit from cancer screening, too many are left behind, resulting in unnecessary suffering and death," the ACR said in a statement. Gaps in cancer screening must be addressed, ACR CEO Dr. William Thorwarth said.

"We could not be more pleased with the direction that this has taken and firmly believe that there is a real opportunity here for radiology to play an increasing role in three of the four cancers (lung, breast, colon) studied by the President's Cancer Panel," he said.
