Kesaco is a set of libraries and programs aiming at applications of mathematical modeling in clinical oncology. It features:

  • A library of specialized mathematical model describing the growth of different types of cancers (secondary tumors in the lung, gliomas).

  • A set of programs useful to validate mathematical models (compute the various behavior they can produce) and to build databases of numerical simulations.

  • Segmentation and registration routines to use medical images directly in our numerical codes.

  • Calibration methods to recover the parameters of the models using sequences of medical images. Three techniques are implemented (a genetic algorithm, a technique based on reduced order models, a sensitivity technique).

All these routines are adapted to run on a MP architecture. The webpage may be found at http://www.math.u-bordeaux1.fr/~osaut/pages/kesaco.html .
