Health Technology Assessment

A fair and efficient distribution of financial means is of increasing importance in healthcare systems with limited economic resources.

Health Technology Assessment refers to the systematic and evidence-based evaluation of medical procedures and technologies regarding their effects on the Healthcare system. Dimensions of these evaluations include medical economic, ethical and social aspects. In radiology, these refer mainly to diagnostic procedures but may also include therapeutic aspects and are applied to both high- and low-income countries. Goal of our group is to achieve an efficient distribution of resources in the healthcare systems and accelerate the translation of new and innovative technologies such as modern imaging technologies and use of Artificial Intelligence in the clinics.
