    Incidence-based Mortality (IBM) Tool to Partition Tumor-Specific Mortality Trends Using Factors Related to Cancer Diagnosis
    1:00PM - 3:00PM ET
    Nadia Howlader and Steve Scoppa
    An overview of the incidence-based mortality (IBM) tool to partition tumor-specific mortality trends using factors related to cancer diagnosis (e.g., histology, stage at diagnosis). We will cover topics such as why we need to use IBM, what is IBM, application of IBM for specific a cancer site. A live demonstration of using the SEER*Stat software.
