The group agreed to explore the onco domains in the following order:

  1. Diagnosis
  2. Treatment
  3. Outcomes survival
  4. Molecular biomarkers
  5. Pathology reports
  6. Imaging
  7. Performance status

Existing standards

· Tumor Registry, CDISC and SEER are the existing standards and efforts in harmonizing the data collection.

Exploratory data set

· Christian would try putting together a working data set

ICD-O-3 overview

Michael Gurley's ICD-O-3 Presentation and proposal for CDM cancer diagnosis modeling

  • ICD-O-3 provides most granular representation of cancer diagnosis including anatomic side and morphological/behavior.
  • Diagnosis can be represented in condition_occurence

ICD-O-3 Mapping

  • Iker suggested that NCI Metatethaurus provides mapping of ICD-O-3 to SNOMED and some other vocabularies
  • Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Oncotree mapping

At MSK we maintain a cancer tumor terminology called oncotree (which is publicly available)

We also have a public API that maps ICDO site and histology combinations to Oncotree concepts, which at the same time are mapped to NCI Thesaurus and UMLS, see

An example for that API would be
