Why APCC for URO Oncology?

CMT is the way going forward in which a team effort is made by the various specialists in discussing the case threadbare in all aspects and arriving at the right treatment options for that stage of that disease of that patient. Even though guidelines are present to help u with the decision making not all cases fall into the purview of the guidelines and requires diligent evaluation to suit the treatment to that patient, not vice versa


Each member of the Mult-Disciplinary team evaluates the patient in detail individually (to eliminate bias), and then sits together to review the entire history and images alongside the radiologist and the pathologist to chart out a solid treatment plan for the present and the future as well.
