A computer assisted method to determine the diagnostic efficacy of computed tomography of the body

Academic Article


  • A computer assisted system has been devised to provide objective measurements of the diagnostic efficacy of CT of the body. The diagnostic efficacy of CT is compared with that of upper gastrointestinal (UGI) examinations for 574 patients. The potential usefulness of this system in cost effectiveness studies, diagnostic efficacy studies, and clinical efficacy studies is examined.
