Abstract
There is a concern that brain tumours are underreported in the Alberta Cancer Registry (ACR), yet no studies have been performed to investigate this issue. This study addresses the concern of underreporting of brain tumours in the ACR by assessing case ascertainment of primary brain tumours cases present in physician databases captured by the ACR, specific to the pediatric population. This study also determines overall pediatric brain tumour case ascertainment of the ACR and the pediatric physician databases. Demographic, diagnostic and treatment information from the physician databases and the ACR will also be reviewed to assess comparability.
