Tumor or cancer registries find this text essential for coding the topography
and morphology of the neoplasm. Published by the World Health Organization
(WHO) in consultation with the CAP, the manual contains three sections for coding: coding
guidelines for topography and morphology, numerical lists, and an alphabetical
index. In addition, the morphology section of ICD-O is incorporated into the Systematized
Nomenclature of Medicine (SNOMED) classification as the neoplasm section of
the morphology field. For more information on SNOMED, visit www.capsts.org.
Partial Contents: Historical Background; Differences Between ICD-O and ICD-10; Summary of Principal Rules for Using ICD-O; Coding Guidelines and Numerical Lists for Topography and Morphology; Multiple Primary Neoplasms; Basis of Diagnosis; New and Deleted ICD-O Codes; New Morphology Terms and Synonyms; Terms that Changed from Tumor-Like Lesions to Neoplasms.
