MDS Classification Tool
About MDS Classification
MDS is a family of diseases, categorized by doctors and researchers into subtypes according to one or more classification schemes: the International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS), its revised version (IPSS-R), the WHO (World Health Organization) Classification System (WPSS), and the older FAB (French American British) Classification System. You may find any of them referenced in medical literature. For more information about MDS and its subtypes, see MDS Classification.
You can use this tool to understand how MDS classification works, to identify your score or subtype under five MDS classification schemes, and to study how different input data affects the classifications.
Important! The MDS Classification Tool can help you learn more about your health and identify questions to ask your doctor. Tools like this must not be used to make your own diagnostic or treatment decisions or to replace medical consultations. We recommend that you confirm your subtype with your doctor and ask your doctor what it means for your health and treatment.
