The cancer treatment is no longer in the realms of single discipline and is now multimodular in nature wherein the oncologist from disciplines of surgical, medical & radiation oncology use their experience and expertise to decide the line of treatment. The latest technological advances in radiology and imaging in the form of MRI, CT, PET Scan back the team.
Tumor board, which comprises of specialists from all various disciplines including, medical oncology, surgical oncology, pediatric oncology, gynecology, urology and radiation oncology meet twice a week to decide on the initial line of treatment & review complex cases and cases of early failure to give the best treatment option that is available within or otherwise. They develop the best care plan for you together, rather than each specialist seeing you individually to give their opinion. This approach gives you access to the right team of health professionals to plan the best treatment for your cancer type based on current guidelines and identify your supportive care needs.
