^SEER*RSA—Contains Site-Specific Schema Lists which include many coded data item lists such as Tumor Size—clinical, path and summary; Grade—clinical, path and post therapy; EOD 2018, Summary Stage 2018; and Site-Specific SSDIs. Always check that you are using the latest version.

*AJCC TNM 8th ed (3rd printing)—for those taking advantage of the 3rd edition discount in an effort to purchase a manual needing NO updating, sorry to burst your bubble…the errata continue even on the 3rd edition. As of 08/17/2018, there were 59 errata listed w/ about 54 of them being critical or important. Thus if you purchased a 3rd edition manual you will still have updating to do just a lot less than older editions.

#Solid Tumor Rules-- IMPORTANT NOTE: “Cutaneous Melanoma” and “Other Sites” chapters WILL NOT BE UPDATED UNTIL 2021. Thus, existing 2007 MPH rules will still apply ONLY to these two site groups, including the use of Ambiguous Terminology in determining the most specific histology.

^^CTR Guide to Coding Radiation Therapy Tx in STORE—when “Guide” coding instructions conflict with STORE, the “Guide” takes precedence per Wilson Apollo RTT.
