HTA of camera capsule endoscopy for detection of colorectal cancer

The HTA-unit at OUH will concurrently with an existing research project, CAREforCOLON, at Department of  Surgery A perform a systematic  literature review and meta-analysis of the sensitivity and specificity of camera capsule endoscopy for diagnosing colorectal cancer. Furthermore, an economic analysis of the consequences of introducing camera capsule endoscopy as an intermediate step in Region of Southern Denmark’s existing colorectal cancer screening program will be performed.

The HTA-project is ongoing and is expected to be completed at the beginning of 2017.
