Disease Trend
Disease trend, also referred to as disease status, represents the clinician's overall judgment on the current trend of a condition, e.g., whether it is stable, worsening (progressing), or improving (responding). The judgment may be based a single type or multiple kinds of evidence, such as imaging data, physical examination, tumor measurements, laboratory data, etc. The condition trend can be reported multiple times during the course of a condition, each report representing the clinical judgement at that point in time. The element is important in assessing disease progression and determining the efficacy of treatments.
