Table 3 Comparison with the SEER conversion program according to the tumor type (hematopoietic and solid tumors) and the number of branches of the diagnosis lattice that are identified for an ICD-10 code / ICD-O-3 combination

From: Building a model for disease classification integration in oncology, an approach based on the national cancer institute thesaurus

  All Hematopoietic tumors Solid tumors
  N=42260 (%) N=14213 (%) N=28047 (%)
Related in the model* 42260 (100.0) 14213 (100.0) 28047 (100.0)
More than 1 branch a 15234 (36.1) 9910 (69.7) 5324 (18.9)
Mappings rebuilt from the model** 17766 (42.0) 739 (5.2) 17027 (60.7)
Non unique mappings b 4886 (27.5) 333 (45.1) 4553 (26.7)
  1. *Related in the model means that there is at least a common diagnosis inside the model that is instantiated by both the ICD-10 code and the ICD-O-3 combination
  2. **Mappings rebuilt from the model corresponds to the mappings that we were able to rebuild automatically from the model
  3. aMore than 1 branch means that there is more than one branch of the diagnosis lattice that was instantiated by both the ICD-10 code and the ICD-O-3 combination
  4. bNon unique mappings means that the topography-morphology combination was also mapped to another ICD-10 code (inconsistent with the SEER file)
