Significantly expanded and developed by international disease site expert panels, the Eighth Edition AJCC Cancer Staging Manual brings together all the currently available knowledge on staging of cancer at various anatomic sites. In this edition, evidence-based TNM staging is supplemented, as appropriate, by selected molecular markers and newly acquired insights into the molecular underpinnings of cancer. 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. To enhance the print and electronic usability of the cancer staging forms, they are now available exclusively for access and downloading at www.cancerstaging.org. 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.

This first edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Atlas has been created as a compendium to the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual and Handbook which have now been developed through six editions and which continue to promulgate the importance of anatomical and pathological staging in the management of cancer. This Atlas has been viewed as a companion to illustrate the TNM classifications of all the regions included under the head and neck, digestive, thoracic, musculoskeletal, soft tissue, breast, genital, urinary and gynecologic sites. This monograph has been fully illustrated to give meaningful visualization to the TNM classifications and stage groupings and will serve as a useful reference for the clinician and patient alike. Since there have been changes in staging strategies in the 6th Edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, the differences between the 5th edition and 6th edition have been included throughout the Atlas. This will provide a meaningful comparison for the experienced clinician as well as serve as a teaching reference for the student and trainee. The 432 outstanding illustrations have been developed exclusively for the AJCC Cancer Staging Atlas by Alice Y. Chen, our exceptional medical illustrator. Every illustration provides detailed and thorough anatomic depictions to clarify critical structures and to allow the reader to instantly visualize the progressive extent of malignant disease.Appropriate labeling has been incorporated to identify significant anatomic structures. A significant number (28%) of the illustrations are devoted solely to the representation of the TNM changes which are new in the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, 6th Edition. Throughout all anatomic sites, the newly developed illustrations reflect concepts that are more completely discussed in the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual and Handbook. The AJCC Cancer Staging Atlas is an official publication of the American Joint Committee on Cancer and reinforces the AJCC’s position as the leader in disseminating state of the art information on TNM staging. The AJCC continues to have as its mission the education of physicians, registrars and patients. The Atlas, a portable and easily referenced representation of the AJCC monographs, continues to enhance this mission. This project has been fully supported by our publishing colleagues at Springer and especially Laura diZerega and Bill Curtis, our longtime friends and AJCC supporters. The editors of this most recent AJCC project wish to reinforce the concept that TNM is a universal “language” which must be applied by all clinicians caring for the cancer patients. In order to make this language come alive, a pictorial representation of clinical and pathological staging is necessary.We dedicate this work to all of our patients and colleagues and hope that they too will benefit from this illustrated resource.

Genre: Medical

The Second Edition of TNM Staging Atlas with Oncoanatomy has been updated to include all new cancer staging information from the Seventh Edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual. The atlas presents cancer staging in a highly visual rapid-reference format, with clear full-color diagrams and TNM stages by organ site. The illustrations are three-dimensional, three-planar cross-sectional presentations of primary anatomy and regional nodal anatomy. They show the anatomic features identifiable on physical and/or radiologic examination and the anatomic extent of cancer spread which is the basis for staging. A color code indicates the spectrum of cancer progression at primary sites (T) and lymph node regions (N). The text then rapidly reviews metastatic spread patterns and their incidence. For this edition, CT or MRI images have been added to all site-specific chapters to further detail cancer spread and help plan treatment. Staging charts have been updated to reflect changes in AJCC guidelines, and survival curves from AJCC have been added.
