The Tumor Board
Following treatment, the tumor is sent to the pathologist. Genetic testing is often performed, as well. The ANA multi-disciplinary team of medical experts, called the Tumor Board, including surgeons, neurologists, neuro-pathologists, neuro-oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, physical therapists, nurses, psychologists and social workers, convene to review your child’s condition, needs and test results. This team approach is also taken in the recommendation of the personalized treatment protocol for your child.
