Denver, Colorado (June 10, 2011) -- The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC), the only global organization dedicated to the study of lung cancer, today announced the release of its Staging Atlas in Thoracic Oncology as a downloadable application for iPad, iPhone, Android or BlackBerry.
The app, which puts the most up-to-date TNM (tumor, node, metastasis) staging information in the hands of doctors and patients living with cancer, is available in English, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish and Chinese.
The Staging Atlas was developed in collaboration with the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). It's the first-ever site-specific guide on the TNM classification of thoracic malignancies. With its IASLC-original illustrations, beautifully rendered specifically for iPad and smartphone media, it serves as a complement to and enhancement of the AJCC and UICC staging publications.
This interactive staging tool for on-the-spot verification of the most up-to-date TNM classification variables is especially valuable to oncologists, surgeons, radiologists and scientists working in the field of thoracic oncology.
It can be ordered through IASLC's website, http://iaslc.org/, or at the following sites:
