There are a number of technologies which will be covered in the Commissioning through Evaluation scheme (CtE) in the year beginning April 2014.

NHS England's CtE scheme for Selective Internal Radiation Therapy went live in 2013 and will provide treatment for around 220 patients per year.

Three new interventional cardiology CtE schemes are due to go live in the next few weeks and are expected to treat around 1,000 patients in a full year.

The Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy CtE scheme, also due to go live shortly, will provide around 100 operations in a full year.
