New Equipment for the Tumor Board

The US Ludhiana CMC Board provided funds to the Ludhiana Christian Medical College for a computerized microscope, computer and LCD projector to be used at these weekly tumor board meetings.  The new equipment enables those gathered to view the tumors together and discuss the best treatment for the patient.

The Tumor Board, headed up by Dr. Navneet Chaudhry, Head of Surgery, meets every Friday afternoon to review each cancer patient under treatment.  The board includes members from all of the surgical specialties as well as Pathology, Medical Oncology, and Radiation Oncology.  They also have input from Radiology which helps with reviewing  CT scans and x-rays.
