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.
