The Epidemiology, Process and Outcomes of Spine Oncology
The main purpose of this study is to utilize a comprehensive, prospective clinical database
to collect patient, diagnostic and treatment variables along with disease specific and
generic health related quality of life (HRQOL) data on consecutively treated patients with
metastatic spine tumours. The objectives are to determine the validity and reliability of the
Spine Cancer Outcomes Questionnaire (SCOQ) for use in the assessment of spine tumour
outcomes, to determine if the Spine Instability Neoplastic Score (SINS) Classification is a
valid tool for predicting the stability of spine in metastatic spine disease, and to
determine the efficacy of surgery versus radiation therapy for the treatment of impending
instability secondary to metastatic disease of the spine.
