To review economic evaluations of genetic interventions published between 2004 and 2009 and assess the quality of the identified studies, we searched for economic evaluations of genetic testing and interventions published between 2004 and 2009. Studies that met inclusion criteria were reviewed and their quality then assessed using a validated instrument—the(More)
229 Background: Asymptomatic men with low but detectable PSA elevation following radical prostatectomy, often receive costly, burdensome, and potentially damaging salvage radiation therapy with uncertain benefit. A new prostate cancer specific functional imaging technology capable of identifying residual localized disease vs. small volume metastatic(More)
PURPOSE Because benign biopsies resulting from false-positive mammographic findings are a known harm of breast cancer screening, physicians and test manufacturers are searching for ways to reduce their frequency. The aim of this study was to estimate potential costs and consequences associated with using an adjunct diagnostic test for triaging women with(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess potential cost-effectiveness of using a prostate cancer specific functional imaging technology capable of identifying residual localized disease versus small volume metastatic disease for asymptomatic men with low but detectable prostate specific antigen (PSA) elevation following radical prostatectomy.

To evaluate the cost effectiveness of genetic screening for the apolipoprotein (APOE) ε4 allele in combination with preventive donepezil treatment in comparison with the standard of care for amnestic mild cognitive impairment (AMCI) patients in Canada. We performed a cost-effectiveness analysis using a Markov model with a societal perspective and a time(More)
