This edition features 12 entirely new staging systems, a wide range of changed or new staging definitions, and a refined emphasis on a personalized-medicine approach. The Eighth Edition AJCC Cancer Staging Manual remains the gold standard reference for oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, cancer registrars and medical professionals world-wide to ensure that all those caring for cancer patients are fully versed in the language of cancer staging.

    At this point, it’s really too early to determine how nice this app could be. First, the use of the highlighting tool needs an overhaul to make it easier to choose and save colors and to just be able to draw one line to highlight instead of drawing and dragging the line to try to highlight either a word or sentence. Second, the TNM Staging does not work properly. For a lot of the sites, if you enter a T1, N1, M0, it derives a Stage Group of IVA. That is incorrect. Again, it does this for most of the sites which either means they don’t know how to stage, or they need to revamp this portion of the app and immediately update it. It has all the great information of the hard copy which is nice to have on-the-go, but if the staging doesn’t work properly, it’s useless and I would wait and see if they fix this before spending this amount of money like I did.
