Healthy Living: Take On Cancer With Math
Cancer fighting teams may soon include an oncologist, a surgeon and a mathematician.
Tumor growth isn’t as random as once thought.
In Healthy Living, see how the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix has opened a research lab where the goal is to use math to find the best treatment for brain cancer tumors.
The Mayo research team is currently running a study to validate predictive models of tumor spread.
They hope to be in clinical trials using the math model to direct surgery within the year.
