Interventional oncologists require the ability to conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment of patients with a variety of malignancies and a range of associated medical problems. These basic assessment skills also promote smoother interactions among the various physicians who comprise the multidisciplinary team, and therefore will allow the interventional oncologist to play a key role in management of these patients. Evaluation of the cancer patient is composed of several fundamental principles, including medical history, physical examination, performance status grading, quality of life assessment, laboratory and data review and, ultimately, in-depth patient discussion on choices of treatment plans (1).
