• preventive
  • In 2009 the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) suggest that colon cancer screening modalities that are also directly preventive by removing precursor lesions should be given precedence, and prefer a colonoscopy every 10 years in average-risk individuals, beginning at age 50.

  • prevalence
  • The prevalence of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 coronary risk factors did not change significantly between the two screens in either the total group of 1,817 adults or in the 872 adults in the educational program. (ahajournals.org)
  • Although originally thought to be linked to multiple developmental disorders histidinemia is now accepted as a relatively benign disorder, leading to a reduction in the prevalence of neonatal screening procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancers
  • And this heterogeneity has an unfortunate implication: namely, screening tends to disproportionately detect slow-growing cancers (because they are accessible to be detected for a long period of time) and disproportionately miss the fast-growing cancers (because they are only accessible to be detected for a short period of time) - the very cancers we would most like to catch. (wikipedia.org)
  • These are the cancers for which screening has arguably the greatest beneficial impact. (wikipedia.org)
  • The likelihood of cancer being present: Screening is not normally useful for rare cancers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Breast
  • The use of Ultrasound scans has been advocated for in some LMICs such as Uganda as a stopgap measure to screen the most at risk women (30-45 years) of breast cancer in the absence of mammographic and other image screening services. (uct.ac.za)
  • There is therefore need to investigate the efficacy of ultrasonography for breast cancer in LMICs and subsequently estimate the resource requirements for implementing population level screening using this method. (uct.ac.za)

  • Medical
  • When done thoughtfully and based on research, identification of risk factors can be a strategy for medical screening. (wikipedia.org)
  • Medical screening equipment must be capable of fast processing of many cases, but may not need to be as precise as diagnostic equipment. (wikipedia.org)
  • individuals
  • Screening, in medicine, is a strategy used in a population to identify the possible presence of an as-yet-undiagnosed disease in individuals without signs or symptoms. (wikipedia.org)

  • Methods
  • Background: Because early squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the esophagus is detectable by endoscopic esophageal iodine staining with high accuracy and is easily treated by endoscopic mucosectomy, it is important to develop efficient methods for screening candidates for the endoscopic examination.
