Intelligent modelling of oesophageal cancer treatment and its use to determine the dose of chemotherapy drug.

Abstract

In this paper, the behaviour of oesophageal cancer has been modelled to provide treatment for patients with oesophageal squamous carcinoma. In this method, the dose of chemotherapy drugs is calculated using a combination of neural networks. Implementation shows that the proposed method is able to effectively treat oesophageal cancer. The results of the proposed method for determining chemotherapy drug dose are in most cases consistent with expert medical opinion.
