Analysis of extremes is another frequently employed technique: by varying multiple parameters simultaneously, the model is systematically biased toward and then against a given program to see if the baseline analytic result is robust [60]. Finally, probabilistic sensitivity analysis can simultaneously evaluate the effects of uncertainty in many input parameters [61-63]. Sensitivity analysis is vitally important in economic evaluation precisely because so many assumptions are required. Despite their complexity, published analyses of cancer screening have not, in general, included very complete sensitivity analyses.
