Optimization for Radiation Therapy of Brain Tumours

The researches find that the Treatments for glioblastomas commonly involve a combination of surgical intervention, chemotherapy, and external beam radiation therapy (XRT). Previous works have not only successfully modelled the natural growth of glioblastomas in vivo; but also show potential for the prediction of response to radiation prior to treatment. This suggests that the efficacy of…
