The full name of ICD is the International Monetary Union. It is the international unified disease classification method formulated by the World Health Organization. It is a combination code of letters and numbers. It is an expression system that classifies, orderly combines and codes diseases according to the characteristics of disease causes, pathology, clinical symptoms and anatomical location. At present, the latest version is ICD-10, tumor disease is Chapter 2, and the code is c00-d48.
What is optical drive 3?
The full name of icd-o is international classification ofdiseasforoncology. As the name implies, icd-o must be an extended version based on the tumor part of ICD. Long ago, ICD-8 was considered as ICD in oncology, so ICD-9 was added
For example, lung squamous cell carcinoma encodes c34.9 and m-8070 / 3 for icd-o-3. The latest icd-o version is icd-o-3. At present, it is difficult to use icd-o system in China, so we must work in this direction!
Main differences of icd-o-3 system ICD-10
ICD-10 encodes anatomical sites and pathological tissue types, while icd-o system only encodes 4 digits of anatomical sites. The last dynamic code is the fifth digit of morphological code, which is used to identify malignant and benign tumors. Examples of lung cancer are as follows
How do oncologists correctly record ICD codes
With the development of cancer research management to informatization and digitization, the accuracy of ICD code has become a very important step in data management. So, what should oncologists pay attention to when recording ICD (including icd-o-3) of tumor patients? The author did not fully summarize the following points:
ICD coding is a very technical work in the management of tumor scientific research. Oncologists should not only be familiar with the theory of disease classification and coding, but also be familiar with the basis of medicine, anatomy, pathology and so on. At the same time, the only way to reduce ICD coding errors is to have a strict and practical scientific research style and establish a sense of responsibility and professionalism.
Scientific research and ICD-10
Those who have used crabyter science Bao found that the ICD-10 code is built into the scientific research system, which enables oncologists to record the cancer of tumor patients more regularly and is conducive to later statistical analysis. Once the ICD code records of tumor diseases are standardized, the scientific research cooperation among medical institutions will be easier.
