Phenomena is called ascertainment bias when doing epidemiology. In medicine when you have a technology that improves ability to Dx. a particular illness both incidence and prevalence of that illness seems to sky rocket when often nothing has changed. Same thing occurs with accidents and untoward events in our "tuned in" world.
