Melanoma staging app

Came across this the other day which may be useful to some



Description from website

The Dermatologic Cooperative Oncology Group (DECOG) developed the first free iPhone app for staging cutaneous melanoma patients according to the AJCC 2009 classification system. After entering data like tumor thickness, ulceration, mitotic rate, micro/macrometastases of lymph nodes as well as data for distant metastases the current TNM classification, clinical staging and average 5-year overall survival is calculated. Results can be transferred by e-mail on request.

Through a link to the DECOG homepage further information is provided (treatment guidelines, clinical trials registry).

This app is designed for physicians to simplify the classification of melanoma patients. Prognostic data is average and does not reflect the individual course of the patient. This app cannot substitute a consultation with your treating physician.

    A useful app, I’ve been using it for about 6 months.
