The aim of this paper is to present comparative results of a tumor response to radiotherapy model, concerning two different fractionation schemes and the insulin-like growth factor I receptor expression. A clinical case of glioblastoma multiforme is selected. The model parameters are appropriately adjusted according to the literature. The results of the simulation procedure are three-dimensionally visualized and compared with clinical experience.
