Synoptic Reporting for Cancer Cases


The College of American Pathologists (CAP) updated a total of 52 cancer protocols to reflect the AJCC 8th Edition Cancer Staging Manual. With more than 7,000 changes, the summary of the required and conditional elements for each protocol will help you audit the required elements within your cancer reporting system and reports to ensure that you are providing complete reports to your clinical colleagues and patients.

Please complete the form below and answer two questions about the method you use to create a synoptic report to receive a link allowing you to download the summary of required elements. Insight into how pathologists use the protocols will help the CAP improve the format and design of the cancer protocols.
