Abstract

This document details core (or required) and non-core (or recommended) data items to be included in histopathology reports on endometrial carcinoma. Core data items are identified as items that are required by the National Cancer Outcomes and Services Dataset (COSD) for the staging and grading of cancers and that published evidence indicates are required for optimal patient management and prognosis. Items that fall outside the core definition are included as non-core items. Such items are included to provide a comprehensive report or to meet local clinical or research requirements.
