English term or phrase: multi-phasic health screening
Definition from Farlex Partner Medical Dictionary:
The routine use of multiple tests, usually biochemical, for the purpose of detecting disease at a preventable or curable stage.

Example sentence(s):
  • The term multiphasic screening was first applied to a health survey in San Jose, California in 1949. That survey was designed to detect previously unrecognized chronic diseases for which screening tests were then available and for which therapy would presumably be helpful. Science Direct
  • Automated multiphasic screening programs are becoming generally accepted in the United States. They have developed as a result of the availability of automated testing procedures, and the increasing demand by the public for low-cost periodic health examinations. JAMA Network
  • A research team comprised of Honduran oncologists and scientists from Dartmouth's and Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Norris Cotton Cancer Center wanted to test a new model of "multiphasic" cancer screening event that offered testing for multiple types of cancer in a single screening experience.

Definition from HZJZ:
Rano otkrivanje bolesti u zdravoj asimptomatskoj populaciji odnosno probir (engl. screening) koji se provodi u fazama.

Example sentence(s):
  • Epidemiologija se u cilju sprečavanja bolesti koristi različitim načinima unapređenja zdravlja, među kojima se ističe rano otkrivanje bolesti u zdravoj asimptomatskoj populaciji odnosno probir (engl. screening). Primarnim se mjerama prevencije sprečavaju bolesti uklanjanjem poznatih čimbenika koji utječu na porast rizika od obolijevanja. Sekundarnom se prevencijom nastoji rano i pravovremeno dijagnosticirati i liječiti, a tercijarnom smanjiti ili ukloniti komplikacije i posljedice bolesti. - HZJZ  

Nigdje ne nalazim pojam višefazni zdravstveni probir. Zdravstveni probir kao health screening se može naći u literaturi, pri čemu možemo zaključiti da se multi-phasic health screening odnosi na zdravstveni probir koji se odvija u više faza.
