PURPOSE To develop mathematical models to predict the evolution of tumor geometry in cervical cancer undergoing radiation therapy. METHODS The authors develop two mathematical models to estimate tumor geometry change: a Markov model and an isomorphic shrinkage model. The Markov model describes tumor evolution by investigating the change in state (either… CONTINUE READING
