The Melanoma Calculator is an improved prognosis prediction tool designed for use by medical professionals in the calculation of survival expectation for melanoma patients staged by sentinel lymph node biopsy. Based on the studies described in the publication referenced below, it is more accurate than previously used prediction tools. It is based on research that accounts for a broader range of variables and that is designed to account for a far greater number of possible conditions. The Melanoma Calculator was authored by Advertek®, Inc. Healthcare Data in collaboration with the University of Louisville School of Medicine Department of Surgery, and Kelly M. McMasters, M.D., Ph.D. a nationally recognized authority in the diagnosis and treatment of melanoma.
