A collaboration of the Northern Ireland Cancer Registry (NICR) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) has led to a new tool, CanStaging - a supportive web-based staging tool for cancer registrars.
The tool is designed to maximise the availability of TNM staging rules in order to aid standardisation and comparability of cancer staging internationally. The tool calculates the TNM staging classification from the basic factors on extent of disease, entered by the user in a controlled fashion. The tool implements UICC’s TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours (7th edition) and is available for non-profit use.
