FYI…we’ve developed some edits for this situation, but central registries will have to be careful about adding them to their edit sets. While AJCC says if the T value is not blank, then the N and M should not be blank, that really applies to registrars that have a chart to work from. NPCR want to allow path labs and other non-hospital facilities the ability to just enter the information they have. So if they just have a T value, they want them to enter the T value and leave the other fields blank.

We may only add these new edits to the CoC edit set. We’ll include the new edits in the metafile, but not in the any of the SEER or Central registry edit sets.

I think we are going to have an instructional webinar after the release of v16d to explain (among other things) the pros and cons of adding these edits to a central registry edit set.
