Interdisciplinary Tumour Boards

The tumour board participants include specialists in oncology, surgery, radiotherapy, radiology and pathology. Other medical specialists are also involved depending on the organs affected (e.g. gastroenterologists, respiratory physicians, gynaecologists and urologists).
