Abstract

Application of the AJCC-8 criteria can be expected to simplify the staging process for most DTC patients, who will now be classified as ‘younger’. It will also markedly reduce the number of patients with a substantial mortality risk (those with stages III–IV disease, where the DSS-10 is <50–70%). This new tool, together with the risk of recurrence stratification tools, should facilitate clinicians’ attempts to provide more cost-effective management of DTCs, and this improvement should also have benefits in terms of their patients’ quality of life.
