Tumor growth monitoring and therapeutic evaluation

Each type of cancer is different and requires an adequate model. More specifically, we are currently working on the following diseases:

  • Glioma (brain tumors) of various grades,

  • Metastases to the lung, liver and brain from various organs,

  • Soft-tissue sarcoma,

  • Kidney cancer and its metastases,

  • non small cell lung carcinoma.

In this context our application domains are

  • Image-driven patient-specific simulations of tumor growth and treatments,

  • Parameter estimation and data assimilation of medical images.

  • Machine and deep learning methods for delineating the lesions and stratifying patients according to their responses to treatment or risks of relapse.
