Patient-oriented cancer information on the Internet: a comparison of Wikipedia and a professionally maintained database is a study on coverage, accuracy and readability of cancer information on Wikipedia compared against National Cancer Institute's Physician Data Query (PDQ).
The researchers found that Wikipedia and PDQ had similar accuracy and depth (coverage), but Wikipedia had poorer readability.
