The Tumor Board plays a critical role in multidisciplinary cancer care. At Tumor Board, cases of individual cancer patients are thoroughly reviewed by a team of physicians and other health professionals from different specialties and with unique perspectives. Tumor Board focuses on complex cases, where the diagnosis and course of treatment are not clear cut, and benefits patients by offering a comprehensive, coordinated approach to cancer care for even the most difficult of cases.
