Modeling and analysis of a physical tumor model including the effects of necrotic core

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Publication Date



A new comprehensive diffusion-reaction equation for tumor density is presented with the necrotic conditions accounted for. The forward model has been implemented in 3D using FELICITY FEM code and shown on a mouse SPECT/CT dataset. Future work involves inversion of model across time-points to extract parameters from our model to be assessed for potential cancer quantification and management.
