Authors: Hongbing Liu, Yong Song


Multidisciplinary Teams (MDT) are groups of professionals from various training backgrounds and disciplines who meet together to achieve a common goal (e.g., treating a patient) (1). The treatment of lung cancer has changed from a traditional model to an era of MDT. And NCCN guidelines have recommended that the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer should be based on discussions among MDT experts. According to the British Cancer Guidelines, all patients with confirmed tumors must undergo a MDT consultation before receiving treatment.
