Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Comparative effectiveness research (CER) is the comparison of clinical interventions in real-world settings. The purpose of this article is to discuss the experiences of a CER unit created within the radiology department of one medical institution to provide an example of how to pursue CER within the field of radiology. CONCLUSION. Medical institutions would benefit from investing in CER by creating research groups specifically devoted to this evolving field.
