An audit of the quality of cancer registration data.
The accuracy of cancer registration data in the East of Scotland (Tayside) Cancer Registry was audited by comparing 200 consecutive registrations (about 10% of the annual total) with the « gold standard » of the Histopathology records.
ICD codes were independently generated by a pathologist by examining final pathology reports and then compared to those codes given by the local cancer registrar.
Discrepancies were graded by the pathologist and the epidemiologist according to severity.
Major errors of coding were few.
