Figure 2

Incremental cost estimations in four non-screening scenarios compared to screening both boys and girls. Incremental costs increase from left to right looking at the top of the curves. Incremental cost was lowest in non- screening 70% treatment rate of Lee et al (red), followed by Norway (purple) 80% treatment rate of Lee et al (blue), and 90% treatment rate of Lee et al (green). Incremental costs were highest with higher treatment rate non-screening scenarios and lower in low treatment rate non- screening scenarios compared to screening of both boys and girls. The areas under the curves to the right of zero equals the probabilities of incremental costs being >0.
