Abstract

A methodology for evaluating the effectiveness of a screening program in terms of early detection of disease is presented. Formulas for predicting the effect of different screening intervals are developed. A case study using patient data from the Johns Hopkins Lung Project exemplifies how the method might be applied to cancer screening.
