According to this article about the purchase of a medical imaging company, the diagnostic error rates in China are very high.

“According to data from the Chinese Medical Association, the clinical misdiagnosis rate in the country is 27.8%, while the misdiagnosis rate of cancer is 40%.”

As far as we know, the US clinical diagnostic error rate is closer to 5-10% overall and varies, sometimes much higher, on a disease by disease basis. Do we know what our diagnostic error rate is for cancer in the US?
