About this Book
The complete, authoritative TNM cancer classification and staging system-now illustrated with new, full-colour figures for fast, effective, anatomical referencing
Referring to "Tumour," "Node," and "Metastasis," the TNM system is the most widely used means for classifying and staging the extent of cancer spread. Published in affiliation with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), TNM Atlas, Sixth Edition presents the illustrated version of the TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, Seventh Edition, promoting the uniform application of the TNM classification in cancer practice.
Utilizing beautiful, full-colour medical artwork-illustrating the T and N categories in clear, easily understood graphics-this book aides in the practical application of the TNM classification system. It enables all disciplines involved in cancer classification, staging, and treatment to reach a more standardized understanding and documentation of the anatomical spread of tumours, and further enhances the dissemination and use of the TNM classification.
The TNM Atlas, Sixth Edition:
• Is based upon the very latest TNM Classification data available in TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, Seventh Edition
• Features over 500 full-colour figures that clearly illustrate and highlight anatomical sites of cancer involvement
• Makes TNM classification even more clinically applicable in the day-to-day environment
