This article reports on the results of a project evaluating effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of laser applications in health care.
The literature was collected, emphasizing well-designed clinical trials and cost-effectiveness analyses.
Few randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have been done outside the speciality of ophthalmology.
Even fewer cost-effectiveness studies have been done, despite the frequent claims of cost-effectiveness in the medical literature.
Review papers were commissioned, and a group of laser experts, economists, and policy-analysts met for 2 days to discuss the policy implications of lasers.
