In terms of population screening, as opposed to the surveillance of high-risk groups, the only criterion that can be used to define who should be screened is age.

As far as when is concerned, it has to be accepted that the ideal screening test has yet to be found; at present, the truly non-invasive tests are neither very sensitive nor specific, and the more accurate tests are expensive and unlikely to be sufficiently acceptable to be useful as population-screening tools.
