Data linkage IKNL - PALGA

Researchers can use data generated from a linkage of data from the NCR with data from another registry. The NCR contains data on diagnosis, treatment and survival of cancer. PALGA contains data on the pathological diagnosis. For certain research questions, it may be desirable to combine these data sources, like in the following cases:

  1. If additional pathology data on tumors are needed that are not available in the NCR.
  2. If pathology history or follow-up of tumors in the NCR is needed.
  3. If the researcher wants to request slices or tissue of tumors from the NCR for further research.

An apply for data should be submitted to both IKNL and PALGA.
