The Diagnostic Process

Projects within this research line will describe the clinical presentation of cancer and the predictive value, so that we can describe "the diagnostic funnel" from symptoms to the final cancer diagnosis. We compare this with existing evidence-based standards of diagnostics and provides suggestions for new initiatives and adjustments. Clinical causes of delay and unintended events will be covered, and how these can be eliminated are being worked on.
