This study was carrid out to assess the feasibility of cancer registry program (KCR) in Kwangju metropolitan city, Korea.
The incidence cases and mortality data were mainly collected from the Korean national cancer registry system (NCR) and other resources such as medical insurance records, hospital records, pathology reports, radiation records and death certificates of 1996 in Kwangju metropolitan city.
This study identified 1,422 cases of cancer in 1996, which was about 1379o more than NCR. Cancer cases reported from the hospitals outside Kwangju metropolitan city reached almost 40% of total cases. Death certificate notification percent (DCN%) in 1996 was estimated about 31.1%. The proposed KCR would cover more than 95% of cancer cases in Kwangju metropolitan city.
The proposed KCR seems feasible in collecting cancer date with reasonable accuracy.
