Cost benefit and outcomes analysis for fine-needle aspiration. Why do we know so little?


, : Cost benefit and outcomes analysis for fine-needle aspiration. Why do we know so little?. Clinics in Laboratory Medicine 19(4): 773-81, Vi

In many areas of anatomic pathology, there have been little application of health services research methods. Diagnostic fine-needle aspiration has been performed for decades in the United States, but there is still little knowledge of the benefits and limitations of this procedure. This article examines some of the research regarding fine-needle aspiration cytology and hypothesizes why there has been so little evaluation.
