MIA Prediction Tool for Sentinel Node Metastasis Risk
Use of the MIA Sentinel Node Metastasis Risk Prediction Tool (‘Calculator’) is subject to the following:
The Calculator has been developed by the Melanoma Institute Australia (‘MIA’),
based on a published risk prediction model (see References).
It has been designed only for use by clinicians in relation to patients with primary melanomas and not recurrences.
Any clinician who uses the Calculator agrees and acknowledges that:
The Calculator is based on the MIA patient database population, and may not perform reliably in relation to other populations.
The risk estimate generated by the Calculator must be interpreted in relation to its clinical significance for the patient in question.
The information provided by the Calculator must only be used as a general guide.
MIA gives no warranties, nor makes any representations to any clinician or patient regarding the accuracy, completeness, timeliness or usefulness of any estimate or risk range generated by the Calculator; and
MIA will have no liability to the clinician or any patient for the consequences of any treatment decision made - or any action taken or not taken - by the clinician or their patient following use of the Calculator.
