Echocardiographic Screening for Rheumatic Heart Disease in Indigenous Australian Children: A Cost–Utility Analysis

Our model can be adapted to any other setting but will require local data or acceptable assumptions for model parameters. ( J Am Heart Assoc. 2017;6:e004515. DOI: 10.1161/JAHA.116.004515.)
