Abstract

Hospital-centered academic surgical pathologists are essential members of multidisciplinary head and neck tumor boards. A working, multidisciplinary head and neck tumor board is composed of many dedicated professionals who contribute their individual pieces of patient data. This weekly congregation of head and neck specialists results in a special, concerted, and dynamic process of data integration into a holistic matrix view of the patients. Despite all the technological advances in communication, the fundamentals of human interactions still apply: there is no better substitute for a regular, working, multidisciplinary head and neck tumor board.
