A multidisciplinary team (MDT) is a group of healthcare professionals who come from different disciplines and work together to contribute diagnostic and treatment decisions on a given patient with the aim of providing optimal care for the patient. This new book, iMDT international Multidisciplinary Team, comprises 14 successful iMDT cases written by 123 leading experts from 16 different countries. It includes cases on progressive esophageal neoplasms, EGFR-mutant stage IA lung adenocarcinoma, bilateral tension pneumothorax, massive postpartum pulmonary thromboembolism, bone cement for sternal reconstruction, metastatic colon cancer, hematogenous small intestinal metastasis after removal of epithelial ovarian cancer, and recurrent lung lesion and hilar lymphadenopathy.

As effective multidisciplinary cooperation is the key to high-quality care, iMDT is receiving more attention in the clinical world. We believe that this book will be an excellent literary resource for clinicians and medical staff who want to acquire a better understanding of iMDT.
