Definition:Help on this term

Repeated testing, at regular intervals, of apparently well people to detect a medical condition at an earlier stage than would otherwise be the case.

Screening tests are not diagnostic; therefore, people who receive a positive screening result require further assessment and diagnosis to determine whether or not they have the disease or risk marker being screened for.
