Current CINA edits include several edits such as N1535 that were created and first applied to data in v12A but are now being applied to earlier cases in the CINA data file. This is causing an exceptional amount of manual review. Was this intended? While we agree that data cleaning is good, it is unfortunate to have these applied in a year when we are trying to get reports from facilities who are still struggling with v18 delays and when CCR staff have their attention split to v21 preparation deadlines as well. Is any relief possible?September 21, 2020 at 9:17 am in reply to: user dictionaries #13171
I have used XML+ to create a state-specific user dictionary that includes my state-specific fields. Do I leave the defaulted NPCR fields in it if we do not require those fields (height, weight, etc)?July 28, 2017 at 2:25 pm in reply to: In Situ not histologically confirmed #6033
We have not yet seen it in MO, but I did ask on CA Forum how to stage it and got this answer. :

Technology is advancing to the point that EUS and CT may diagnose in situ cancers of the pancreas and lung for which treatment may be watchful waiting. Thus histologic confirmation is never done. How are these to be staged??

I understand your point, but at this time the physician experts stated that in situ cannot be diagnosed on imaging. Until that opinion changes, Tis may not be assigned.

Will that cause a problem with current TNM edits?
