New Mathematical Model Targeting Cells In Brain Tumors

New research led by student at University of Waterloo has developed new mathematical model that can utilize information about the location of majority of cells inside brain tumors to efficiently target and eliminate them during radiation therapy treatment. "Typically, cells in a tumour are packed at a higher density in the middle and less as you go further out, but that fact is not fully taken into account in current radiation treatment," said Cameron Meany, from Waterloo's Department of Mathematics. The new findings can help researchers better understand the density of these tumor cells and can then create more efficient radiation treatment plans based off the added information that they have found to ultimately kill more cells overall.
