Screening of the young athlete ranges from questionnaires to advanced cardiovascular diagnostic testing. The risk of disease in this population is quite low, yet each event has devastating consequences to families and communities. Prevention of even one event makes such clear moral sense that we feel obligated to employ any and all available tools that could possibly help do just that. It is important that we understand the tools available and that we use them effectively to save as many susceptible young lives as possible. It will be the goal of this talk to best understand the tools available with their advantages and disadvantages. We will also discuss the controversies surrounding these population health screening programs.
