Authors: V.A. Chubenko
Tumour board for the decision making is an integral part of the treatment strategy
of the patient. The main issues that are discussed at the MTD are morphological diagnosis,
stage of the disease, the choice of optimal treatment options and their sequence.
Of course, the direct participants of the tumour board should be key specialists from
each area of the oncology. The main goal is to improve the quality of the treatment of
the particular patient. At the same time, the earlier an individual patient is discussed,
the need for unnecessary diagnostic tests is reduced and treatment time is saved.
Definitely, there is a need for research to explore more effective methods to support
these overloaded, but the key MTD for the most effective treatment of the particular
patient in terms of the impact on his overall survival.
