By: D. Underwood n, J. Zhang*, B. Denton n, N. Shah* & B. Inman*

author keywords: Prostate cancer screening; Simulation optimization; Genetic algorithm; Ranking and selection
MeSH headings : Age Factors; Algorithms; Computer Simulation; Early Detection of Cancer / methods; Early Detection of Cancer / statistics & numerical data; False Positive Reactions; Health Policy; Humans; Male; Practice Guidelines as Topic; Prostate-Specific Antigen / blood; Prostatic Neoplasms / diagnosis; Quality-Adjusted Life Years
TL;DR: A simulation optimization method is described that integrates a simulation model in a genetic algorithm which uses a probabilistic method for selection of the best policy to design PSA screening policies based on expected quality adjusted life years. (via Semantic Scholar)
