The delay between onset of macroscopic haematuria and diagnosis of bladder cancer is often long. In this studie we evaluated timely diagnosis and health-care costs for patients with macroscopic haematuria given fast-track access to diagnostics. Direct access to urologic expertise and fast-track diagnostics is motivated for patients with macroscopic haematuria to reduce diagnostic intervals and lower health-care expenditures.
