Virtual Tumor Boards

Our multidisciplinary cancer teams can provide specialty consultation remotely to help develop customized treatment plans that address each patient's diagnosis and medical history. The Virtual Tumor Board program at Hollings consists of two boards: our Virtual Neuro-Oncology Tumor Board and our Virtual Thoracic Tumor Board.

Both boards provide a forum for in-depth, evidence-based discussion of tumor diagnosis and management and can help identify which patients may benefit from clinical trials. Each program holds its own weekly tumor board with specialists in medical oncology, surgery, radiology, radiation oncology, pathology, research, clinical trials, and epidemiology.

Submitting a Case

When submitting a case, physicians may choose to virtually attend the tumor board to present their patient and discuss the case while interacting with the assembled specialists via teleconference. They also may choose to receive a summary of the discussion and the tumor board’s recommendation in lieu of attending.
