There are several new classifications: upper aerodigestive mucosal melanoma, gastrointestinal stromal tumour, gastrointestinal carcinoids (neuroendocrine tumours),intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, uterine sarcomas, and adrenal cortical carcinoma.
The rules of classification and staging correspond with those appearing in the seventh edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual (2009).
Although the Atlas’s content follows the time-honoured approach of depicting the Ts,Ns, and Ms in graphic terms, the all-new design, layout, and full-colour artwork provide a refreshing approach to cancer staging. As Professor van der Werf-Messing stated in her Foreword to the First Edition over forty years ago, “all of a sudden lifeless categories become vivid images”.
