  1. Preventive pap-smears : balancing cost, risk and benefits.

    Article - En anglais

    The pattern of spontaneous screening for cervical cancer by general practitioners and gynaecologists in the Netherlands is compared with an efficient screening policy resulting from a cost-effective study.

    Spontaneous screening tends to start and stop too early in a woman's life, and leaves too many women overscreened or unprotected.

    The combination in young age of a low incidence of invasive cancer and a high incidence of regressive lesions explains relative ineffectiveness and harmfulness of present screening practice.
