  1. Estimates of costs and effects of screening for colorectal cancer in the United States.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    National conference on colorectal cancer. New Orleans LA (USA), 1991/03/20.


    In many ways, colorectal cancer might be an excellent candidate for mass screening because of the following:

    • (1) it is the second leading cause of cancer mortality in the United States;

    • (2) it develops slowly from a precursor lesion;

    • and (3) methods of early detection are available.

    Barriers to screening include unproven efficacy of the procedure and high costs.


    Cost analyses are derived from two mathematic models that estimate screening costs and effects based on expert opinion and data from uncontrolled screening studies.
