Tests using multiple markers
This chapter describes the methodology behind screening using multiple markers together in a single test. The method is based on estimating an individual's risk of having the disorder being screened for. This is the most efficient method for screening with multiple markers because it maximizes the detection rate for a given false-positive rate. Risk replaces component markers as the screening variable.
