Support our Doctors! Currently, on a melanoma’s first diagnostic, the AJCC-TNM classification is used to predict the mortality rate of patients. This classification is mainly based on: microscopic characteristics of the tumour; effects on loco-regional lymph nodes; and distant metastases (cancer spread to other organs of the body). Given this classification, based only on characteristics of melanoma, is not personalized for each patient, the participants have the challenge of helping the specialists by developing a model capable of accurately predicting the patient’s survival rate (risk of mortality) by adding new relevant characteristics of both the patient and the tumour to the system. This knowledge will enable higher precision in the selection of the diagnostic tests and the most appropriate treatment for each patient.
