On the 19 January 2012, the opening session of the interval meetings of the Neuro-Oncology Scientific Club (NOSC-THN) was held in Tehran, Iran. The NOSC is a newlyestablished scientific forum which currently has formed provincial steering boards in the country and is expected to be turned to the national NOSC in its future perspective. The interdisciplinary nature of this club provides a multifaceted approach for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of brain tumor patients. Participants utilized this transparent and unbiased round table to contribute to discussions and decisions. All comments were open to debate, with interdisciplinary team work for brain tumor patients’ health and quality of life at the center. This paper summarizes the communicated insights (neurosurgery,radiodiagnostics and radiochemotherapy) and the suggested strategies during the first NOSC-Tehran meeting hoping to let readers further perceive the significance of the interdisciplinary approach as a practical model in CNS tumor patients’ care.
