Screening for Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
by Ricker Polsdorfer, MD
The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are administered to people without current symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.
There are no current screening guidelines or tests for MDS.
