  • resources
  • For example, the planning and resources required for a screening program with colonoscopy--which is a sensitive but invasive and expensive test--are very different from a program with that uses stool testing to detect microscopic blood such as an immunochemical stool blood test--which is a less sensitive, but non-invasive and cheap test.

  • vulnerable
