The article discusses the results of a study that examined the role of quality measurement in the inappropriate use of screening for colorectal cancer. Topics discussed include stability of screening use from age 50 to 75 with abrupt decline in use after 75 and the likelihood that a 75-year-old man with poor health will undergo screening than a 76-year-old in good health.
