Entry Element OncotypeDxInvasiveRecurrenceScore


The Oncotype DX test for invasive breast cancer examines the activity of 21 genes in a patient’s breast tumor tissue to provide personalized information for tailoring treatment based on the biology of their individual disease. The value from 0 to 100 indicates the estimated risk of recurrence, with the highest risk indicated by a score greater than 31.

No LOINC code currently exists for this test. We are seeking feedback on the value of separating OncotypeDx scores for DCIS and invasive breast carcinomas. Does it make more sense to report the OncotypeDx as a single score, regardless of the type of cancer?
