Notes**Note 1:** For the purpose of coding EOD Mets, the definition of viscera is the soft internal organs of the body, specifically of the abdominal and thoracic cavity. **Note 2:** Visceral involvement is metastatic disease and should be questioned in the absence of node or blood involvement. **Note 3:** For this schema, distant lymph nodes are collected in EOD Regional Nodes.
