Cancer Reporting Tools

Create the highest quality cancer reports with the CAP cancer reporting tools and help provide excellent patient care by following the latest standards and guidelines for cancer reporting.

The CAP Cancer Protocols are recognized as a "gold standard" in cancer reporting worldwide.

Our Cancer Committee develops these guidelines in collaboration with cancer experts, such as oncologists, molecular experts, radiologists, surgeons, cancer registrars, and other health care professionals, to aid pathologists in cancer reporting. The Pathology Electronic Reporting (PERT) Committee integrates these standards into computer-readable electronic format for pathologist use in AP-LIS systems.

We offer 3 cancer reporting solutions:

Cancer Protocols

The CAP Cancer Protocols (in Word or PDF format) provide consistent and meaningful information that enables health care professionals to manage and study clinical data necessary in improving patient care. Printable versions of the standards are freely available and are used by thousands of pathologists and other medical professionals to provide complete and uniform reporting of malignant tumors.
