A mathematical algorithm that computes breast cancer sizes and doubling times detected by screening.

Abstract

This paper presents a mathematical algorithm that computes the sizes and growth rates of breast cancer detected in a hypothetical population that is screened for the disease. The algorithm works by simulating the outcomes of the hypothetical population twice, first without screening and then with screening. The simulation without screening relies on an… (More)
