The High Resolution studies (HR) started in 1990s as ancillary studies of the EUROCARE project, with the participation of a few population-based Cancer Registries (CR) across Europe. Based on samples of cases representative of the whole cancer incidence population, the HR studies collect more clinical detailed data than those available in the routine cancer registry activity, such as stage at diagnosis, diagnostic procedures, molecular profiling and main treatments.

The main aim of the HR studies is: to explain the reasons of the cancer survival differences evidenced by the EUROCARE studies across Europe.

The HR studies started in the 1990s with 26 CR, and thanks to a steadily growing number of participating Cancer Registries, the study regulary provides publications of patterns of care in Europe.

We would like to acknowledge for this the active scientific community of researchers involved in the HR studies, the governments of the countries involved and all our financial supporters.
