Computer Models of Brain Tumor Metastasis

Authors: James Bonnar

A computer model of brain tumor metastasis is developed and simulated using the language Mathematica. Diffusion of cancer cells through regions of gray and white matter is differentiated resulting in realistic asymmetric tumor growth. Applications include the precise treatment of a patient’s “future tumor” with focused radiation, and modelling the effects of chemotherapy.
