APPENDIX B
ICD•9 Codes for Cancer Outcomes

The International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Edition (ICD•9) is a system used by physicians and researchers around the world to group related disease entities and procedures for the reporting of statistical information. It is used for the purposes of classifying morbidity and mortality information for statistical purposes, indexing hospital records by disease and operations, reporting diagnosis by physicians, data storage and retrieval, reporting national morbidity and mortality data, and reporting and compiling health care data. Many of the studies reviewed by the committee use ICD•9 classifications. Table B-1 lists the codes for the various forms of cancer.
