Post  Admin on Tue Jan 29, 2013 5:24 pm


The World Health Organization will release the newly updated “Blue Book,” The WHO Classification of Soft Tissue and Bone, 4th Edition next month! The book is part of the series commonly referred to as the Blue Book Series, consisting of eleven different titles. The Series is widely used by members of the medical community including faculty and students alike.

This authoritative, concise reference book provides an international standard for oncologists and pathologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome. Diagnostic criteria, pathological features, and associated genetic alterations are described in a strictly disease-oriented manner. Sections on all recognized neoplasms and their variants include new ICD-O codes, epidemiology, clinical features, macroscopy, pathology, genetics, and prognosis and predictive factors.
