  1. Diagnostic certainty and potential for misclassification in exocrine pancreatic cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    Whereas over the last decade epidemiologic studies on exocrine pancreatic cancer (EPC) continued to show a remarkable heterogeneity in diagnostic criteria applied to define caseness, the actual magnitude and consequences of misclassification remain largely unexplored.

    The objectives were :

    (1) to estimate the degree of certainty with which cases of EPC are diagnosed in the two participating hospitals (to this end a diagnostic certainty classification (DCC) was developed ; (2) to test whether characteristics of cases differed by degree of diagnostic certainty ; and (3) to assess what influence different definitions of case might have on risk estimates for tobacco and alcohol.
