About this guidance

About this guidance

NICE medical technology guidance addresses specific technologies notified to NICE by manufacturers. The 'case for adoption' is based on the claimed advantages of introducing the specific technology compared with current management of the condition. This 'case' is reviewed against the evidence submitted and expert advice. If the case for adopting the technology is supported, then the technology has been found to offer advantages to patients and the NHS. The specific recommendations on individual technologies are not intended to limit use of other relevant technologies which may offer similar advantages.

This guidance was developed using the NICE medical technologies guidance process.

We have produced a summary of this guidance for the public. Tools to help you put the guidance into practice and information about the evidence it is based on are also available.
