  • 1. CANCER E-STAGING STANDALONE PROGRAM Dr Sanjoy Sanyal MBBS, MS, MSc (RCSEd), ADPHA Professor and Course Director sanjoy.sanyal@bath.edu Patent Pending
  • 2. Abstract • Given the extreme complexity of grouping T, N, M status of a tumor into its Stages, it is impossible to determine the Anatomical Stage of any cancer without the aid of complex TNM charts created by UICC. • In order to render the process time- and user-friendly for the physician, an MS™ Excel-based e-Staging program was created for 26 cancers of human body. • With just 4 mouse clicks one can arrive at the Stage of the cancer. • This is a standalone tool, not requiring Internet connection, and can be used in a handheld device in any hospital or clinic.
  • 3. Background • In the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) TNM classification, Tumor status (T) is designated as T1, T2 etc, lymph Node metastases (N) are designated as N0, N1 etc, and distant Metastases (M) are designated as M0, M1. • For some cancers, like Seminoma of testis, Serum tumor marker (S) is an additional parameter.
  • 4. Background • Each parameter may be further subdivided into 'a', 'b' etc. • The three (or four) major parameters are grouped in increasing stages of cancer to give the Anatomical Stage of the cancer, designated by Roman numeral I, II etc. • For many cancer, Stages may be subdivided into 'A', 'B'.
  • 5. Process Flowchart for Creation of Cancer e-Staging Standalone Program A multi-step process was used to create the e-Staging Program.
  • 6. Process Flowchart for Implementation of Cancer e-Staging Standalone Program
  • 7. Cancer e-Staging Standalone Program • It has 6 electronic pages, requiring 5 mouse clicks • Content page of the e-Staging tool gives a list of 26 cancers. It comes once we click on the Agree Tab • Once on any Tumor page, the physician is asked to successively select the appropriate T, N, M status of that cancer. • It takes the physician seamlessly through the 3 steps. • Final page gives cancer Stage.
  • 8. Terms of Use Agreement
  • 9. Content Page of e-Staging Program Second Mouse Click: Click on the cancer of choice, for which Staging is required
  • 10. Tumor (T) Page of e-Staging Program Third Mouse Click: Click on the Tumor status (T) of the cancer for which Staging is required
  • 11. Node (N) Page of e-Staging Program Fourth Mouse Click: Click on the Lymph Node status (N) of the cancer for which Staging is required
  • 12. Metastases (M) Page of e-Staging Program Fifth Mouse Click: Click on the Metastasis status (M) of the cancer for which Staging is required
  • 13. Staging Page of e-Staging Program Final Page: Gives the Anatomical Stage of the cancer for which Staging is required
  • 14. Uniqueness of e-Staging Program • This interactive e-Staging tool is standalone, simpler (requiring only 5 mouse clicks), quicker (just a few seconds) and easier than those from others that are all Web-based. • It can be used by any physician with minimum computer skills. • It is portable, can be used in any hand-held device anywhere in the hospital or clinic, and does not require Internet connection.
  • 15. Uniqueness of e-Staging Program • It eliminates consulting complicated TNM charts, which are different for every tumor, and also the need to rely on memory, thus reducing errors and inconsistency between physicians. • The tool can be incorporated in a hospital EMR with HL7. • It is future-scalable, with options to add more cancer sites to the system.
  • 16. Authorship and Conference Presentation • This paper and program was authored by Dr Sanjoy Sanyal, Professor and Course Director of Neuroscience in Medical University of the Americas, Nevis, St Kitts-Nevis, West Indies. • It was accepted at the international Stanford Medicine X Conference, and presented as a poster in Stanford University School of Medicine, LKSC Conference Center, 291 Campus Drive, Stanford, CA 94305-5101, USA, on 30 September, 2012. • Assistance of Medical University of the Americas in preparing the poster is gratefully acknowledged.
