IDENTIFY Risk Calculator Validation

We are excited to announce the IDENTIFY risk calculator validation study has launched! This is a short project that requires you to collect prospective data on at least 15 patients with haematuria (visible or non-visible) investigated with cystoscopy, that do not have a past history of urological cancer.

The data form is quick and will only collect data on the risk calculator variables, and whether the patient had cancer or not. The patient data is anonymous. It should not take you longer than 2-3 weeks to collect this data, depending on the volume of patients attending your department for the investigation of haematuria. Patients found to have cancer (approximately 20%, i.e. 3/15 patients) will need follow up for histopathology, which should not take longer than 3 months.

We will reward each collaborator that submits 15 records with PubMed-indexed collaborator authorship. The top recruiters will be invited to main line authorship. There are already over 75 collaborators from over 15 countries that have pre-registered. If you are interested in participating please email identifystudy@gmail.com with your name, affiliation and country.
