Brain tumor, breast cancer, colon cancer, congenital heart disease, heart arrhythmia. See more conditions.
A model of an actual brain with a glioblastoma, printed from 3-D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and mathematical model predictions showing predicted tumor cell density bands from blue (less dense) to dark red (most dense). Typically, only the red and dark red regions are visible on an MRI scan.
The Mathematical Neuro-Oncology Laboratory uses applied mathematics and clinical oncology to see how different treatments affect glioma tumors.
The Mathematical Neuro-Oncology Lab research team is studying tumor kinetics and existing data to develop mathematical models to determine the best treatment for people with glioma tumors.
Dr. Swanson's unique approach to finding ways to improve treatment and outcomes for people with gliomas is featured in the news media.
