This 7th edition of the TNM Atlas provides healthcare professionals with a detailed pictorial guide to the TNM staging system, demonstrating its practical application via clear, direct text and an array of more than 300 full-colour medical illustrations covering all anatomical sites of cancer involvement.

The UICC TNM staging system is the common language with which oncology health professionals can communicate the extent to which a patient’s cancer has developed. The staging system provides a basis for individual prognosis and for deciding on treatment. It can also be used to inform and evaluate treatment guidelines, national cancer planning and research.

The UICC has published the UICC TNM classification of malignant tumors for over 50 years. The UICC TNM classification is the internationally accepted standard for cancer staging.

The Atlas features specially produced content, created to reflect the most recent iteration of the TNM classification of malignant tumours, the 8th edition. With its full-colour medical artwork and easily understood graphics, the Atlas serves as a quick reference, ideal for use in clinical and educational settings.

“This new fully illustrated edition of the TNM Atlas, edited by members of the UICC TNM Core Committee, facilities the correct application of the TNM classification and staging system and further enhances the dissemination and use of the TNM classification.” 
–    Dr James Brierley, UICC TNM Core-Committee Co-chair and the TNM Atlas Editor
