Regional round established since many years that addresses patients from Northern Sweden with neuro-endocrine tumours. Frequent participants are Nus, Östersund Hospital and Uppsala Academic Hospital, although several other hospitals in the northern healthcare region are also invited. Among the Swedish university hospitals, the Academic Hospital is most experienced with this type of tumours. Participation in the conferences is enabled through videoconference and allows the participants to view x-rays and pathology specimens simultaneously. The round involves endocrinologists, radiologists, oncologists, surgeons and pathologists who discuss patient cases in order to reach consensus on best treatment strategy.
