Abstract

The authors report some aspects of secondary prevention, including screening programs. General standards for screening programs are first analyzed; standards including a) definition of the problem and its social importance; b) tumor natural history; c) diagnostic test characteristics; d) therapeutic possibilities; e) evaluation of results. The problem of selective screenings are then discussed as they attempt to reduce costs and maximize benefits.
