Technology Assessment in the Normative Aging Study

  • Alexia Antczak-bouckoms (a1), J. F. Camilla Tulloch (a2) and Sidney Klawansky (a1)

Abstract

This review of publications based on data from the Veterans Affairs Normative Aging Study identified four articles that were considered assessments of health care technologies. Three evaluated methods for research on body composition, the fourth studied ventricular size in patients with presenile dementia. Several additional articles are discussed that provided data on baseline values or risk factors for disease that might be useful in generating hypotheses to be tested in later assessments of technologies.
