COL = colonoscopy; LYG = life-years gained compared with no screening; ΔCOL = incremental number of colonoscopies compared with the next-best non-efficient strategy; ΔLYG = incremental number of life-years gained compared with the next-best non-efficient strategy.

Age and intervals expressed as years.

Near-efficient strategies yield life-years gained within 98% of the efficient frontier.
