American Joint Commission on Cancer (AJCC) Staging

In all instances where questions relate to disease staging of contemporaneous cases or hypothetical situations, the correct staging system will be the most current as published by the AJCC (at this time, Ed. 7, dated 1/1/2010). In instances where questions refer to previously reported clinical trials, staging will relate to the system in place at the time of the specific report.

The 2017 radiation oncology exams will be based on the AJCC Staging Manual, 7thEdition; the 2018 radiation oncology exams will be based on the AJCC Staging Manual, 8thEdition.
