Ethical Principles in the Analysis of Prostate Cancer Diagnostics

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Recent developments in prostate cancer diagnostics call for appropriate tools to frame the ethical assessment of diagnostic practice. The first aim is to identify ethically important features and ethical principles of key importance for prostate cancer diagnostics. Next, we need to argue which ethical theory justifies these principles and can therefore be used for ethical assessment in the field. The standard medical procedure for prostate cancer diagnostics offered by the Danish health care system is used as an example.
