The Report is a national Adaptation of the EUnetHTA Core Report for CRC Screening comparin FIt and gFOBT. We translated the main results and discussed it for Austrian Settings.

The report compares two diagnostic fecal occult blood tests for detecting CRC as a screening tool. Although the two tests are very similar the available evidence tends to prefer FIT over gFOBT for a population based screening due to higher senstivity. For the cost-effectiveness the 10years simulation of consequences shows better performance for FIT in populations based screening programs (lower costs, higher effectiveness) or at least lower costs per life year gained (3.000 Euro to17.000 Euro) or QALY (400 Euro to 8.800 Euro). Best performance for FIT is reached with an organised screening whereas gFOBT is also to be used as a point-of-care-diagnostic, reduced by the higher number of wrong negative results.
