New National Academy report on improving cancer diagnosis - Diagnostic error lists in general

 Dear Mark,
Are there lists of the top 5, 10, 50, or even 100 commonest final diagnoses that are associated with past missed/incorrect diagnoses in the US?
Do such lists exist? If not, would they be valuable? Are there any such lists already available in other countries?

What would be the limitations of such lists? What would be the benefits? 
Would the lists need to be regional? How to develop, define, and strengthen any lists that are developed?
If there is no data by which to generate such lists could specialist surveys be used to compile them? 
I have the idea that such lists, somewhat like the focus we have had on pulmonary embolus and breast cancer diagnoses would be valuable. 
Lists would, I think, focus our attention and resources on the biggest problems, and hopefully saving lives and injury.

Improving Cancer Diagnosis and Care: Patient Access to Oncologic Imaging and Pathology Expertise and Technologies: Proceedings of a Workshop
  |


  
 
| 
Rapid advances in cancer research, the development of new and more sophisticated approaches to diagnostic testing, and the growth in targeted cancer therapies are transforming the landscape of cancer diagnosis and care. These innovations have contributed to improved outcomes for patients with cancer, but they have also increased the complexity involved in diagnosis and subsequent care decisions.
