Multidisciplinary team (MDT) for lymphoma
Usually, a team of specialists called a multidisciplinary team (MDT) meets to plan your treatment.
The MDT may include:
- haematologists and oncologists – these are doctors who specialise in treating lymphoma
- a radiologist – this is a doctor who analyses scans and x-rays
- a clinical nurse specialist, who will make sure you get help and support throughout your treatment.
It may also include other specialists, such as a pharmacist, dietitian, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, psychologist or counsellor.
