The ESMO Interactive Guidelines app, from the European Society for Medical Oncology, is an excellent reference for oncologists and cancer researchers. The app contains extensive guidelines for cancer diagnosis and treatment and covers a wide range of cancer types. The sections for each type of cancer included on the app contain information about screening and diagnosis, risk assessment, treatment, and long-term implications. The app also contains several calculators that allow users to calculate metrics such as IPSS and DIPSS scores. There are also several algorithms that include decision trees for diagnosis, which allow users to walk through various steps depending on measurements acquired from the patient. Some features of the app, such as the PDF versions of recommendations, can be glitchy. However, overall, the ESMO Interactive Guidelines app is a great reference for oncologists trying to determine the best course of treatment for their patients.
