CONTEXT Recent studies have demonstrated the potential cost-effectiveness of using 2-fluoro-2-D-[(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) in the management of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), but because of differences in health-care systems, those findings may not hold true in a Japanese hospital. OBJECTIVE To assess the cost-effectiveness of the chest CT plus chest FDG-PET strategy in Japan. DESIGN Decision-tree sensitivity analysis based on the two… CONTINUE READING
