Summary

"This project was commissioned by the National Breast Cancer Centre (NBCC). The objectives of the project, as set out in the call for expressions of interest, were to determine: > The costs associated with the introduction and use of directional vacuum-assisted breast biopsy (DVA breast biopsy) in Australia; and > Whether directional vacuum-assisted breast biopsy used for diagnostic purposes is cost-effective in Australia when compared to core biopsy. The motivation for commissioning the project was an assessment of directional vacuum-assisted breast biopsy conducted by the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) which concluded that the procedure is safe and more effective than core biopsy. Although a cost-effectiveness analysis was not conducted as part of the MSAC study, MSAC recommended that the costs associated with the procedure be investigated and that, pending a review of costs, the procedure receive interim Medicare funding at a higher level than was previously available" -- Foreword.
