In the present report, we propose a new model to simulate the growth of glioblastomas multiforma (GBM), the most aggressive glial tumors. Because the GBM shows a preferential growth in the white fibers and have a distinct invasion speed with respect to the nature of the invaded tissue, we rely on an anatomical atlas to introduce this information into the model. This atlas includes a white fibers diffusion tensor information and the delineation of cerebral structures having a distinct response… CONTINUE READING
