AIM The cost-effectiveness of Carbon ion radiotherapy (RT) for patients with skull base chordoma is analyzed. MATERIALS AND METHODS Primary treatment costs and costs for recurrent tumors are estimated. The costs for treatment of recurrent tumors were estimated using a sample of 10 patients presenting with recurrent chordoma at the base of skull at DKFZ. Using various scenarios for the local control rate and reimbursements of Carbon ion therapy the cost-effectiveness of ion therapy for these… CONTINUE READING
