Article Abstract

TNM in non-small cell lung cancer: a staging system for all oncologists or just for surgeons?

Authors: David Ball

Primarily it sorts patients into different prognostic categories, but it is also useful for guiding treatment and creating a common international language so that comparable groups can be analysed when evaluating the effect of interventions.
