Alternate Names
   Systemic/Surgery Sequence
Records the sequencing of systemic therapy (RX Summ-Chemo [1390], RX Summ-Hormone [1400], RX Summ-BRM [1410], and RX Summ-Transplnt/Endocr [3250]) and surgical procedures given as part of the first course of treatment. See also RX Summ--Surg Prim Site [1290], RX Summ--Scope LN Surg [1292], and RX Summ--Surg Oth Reg/Dis [1294].
