Teamwork has been defined over the years in the scientific literature in various ways, such as the multidisciplinary team (MDT) or interdisciplinary teamwork. In Italy, MDT is defined as Oncological Multidisciplinary Group. It is accredited as a gold standard for the management of cancer patients and is supported by leading organizations such as the European Cancer Action Partnership and the American Society of Clinical Oncology. The MDT represents a rational and ethical approach to cancer patient therapy as it potentially provides many benefits and a complete assistance to all patients. This type of approach to cancer treatment is driven by desire to have the quality of life of the cancer patient as the ultimate goal. Third-millennium radiologists must understand that participating in it is an integral part of their daily clinical activity.
