Abstract

Purpose: To analyze the cost-utility of contrast-enhanced MR angiography (ceMRA) in the diagnosis and the planning of surgical or interventional treatment in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease. Materials and Methods: Additional costs and incremental costs per quality-adjusted life-year for ceMRA were calculated by a decision model. The costs of ceMRA and conventional angiography were compared. Treatment was either surgery or PTA. A retrospective analysis of 24 patients provided the data for the diagnostic accuracy of ceMRA. The data about quality of life assessment were taken from the literature. Costs were calculated in Euro using the current fee schedule. The influence of the individual parameters on the model was estimated from a sensitivity analysis. Results: Per quality-adjusted life-year, ceMRA added € 24,408.60 in cases undergoing radiologic intervention and € 24,191.32 in cases treated surgically. Conclusion: Despite its high costs, ceMRA is an effective diagnostic procedure considering patient benefits. Additional costs do not exceed an acceptable range.
