"Statistics on the diagnosis, treatment, and survival of cancer patients at [Touro Infirmary] . . . based on 6,777 cases, . . . compiled by the Cancer Activities Committee of the hospital medical staff. . . . Employs data from the National Cancer Institute's End Results in Cancer and other statistical studies to present an overview of cancer incidence, diagnosis, treatment and survival rates."
Heterogeneity of treatments and lack of data on initial case homogeneity reduce the value of this compendium for use as a control or contract yardstick at other institutions.
