Need for a dedicated Musculoskeletal Tumor Registry in India

Registries are one of the most important resources for any disease. Around 200 cancer registries in the world that covering up mere 5% of worlds population was noted in 1999. However no parallel data exists currently but we are sure that number of cancer registries have increased over the period of time.India has an already existing National cancer registry program which was started in 1981 and is still running strong. However we belive that time has now come for a dedicated musculosketal registry in India. The technology has grown rapidly and now we have developed a simple mobile app which can collect most of the registry data in a very simple and user friendly way. We have been working on this concept sicne two years now and have taken inputs from many orthoonco surgeons. The mobile app is finally launched in the public domain and is available on google play store and app store. The app is named ‘MSK Registry’ and It can be downloaded for free by all interested in contributing cases. We would urge everyone to contribute and also write to us for any issues or queries
