Over time, the input codes and instructions for CS items may change. This item identifies the correct interpretation of input CS items.
Codes (See the most current version of the Collaborative Stage Data Collection System (http://cancerstaging.org),13 for rules and site-specific codes and coding structures.)
CS Version Input Original is a 6-digit code (e.g., 010100). The first two digits represent the major version number; the second two digits represent minor version changes; and, the last two digits represent even less significant changes, such as corrections of typographical errors that do not affect coding or derivation of results.
