Challenges in Patient-Specific Computer Simulations of Image-Guided Therapies
For many therapeutic interventions, imaging has become an essential component of initial diagnosis, as well as the monitoring of treatment progress and outcome. Imaging data can now be acquired in real-time, which has led to the emergence of image-guided interventions... Read more

Untargeted Large Volume Hyperthermia Reduces Tumor Drug Uptake From Thermosensitive Liposomes
Goal: The impact of hyperthermia (HT) method on tumor drug uptake with thermosensitive liposomes (TSL) is not well understood. Methods: We created realistic three-dimensional (3-D) computer models that simulate TSL-encapsulated doxorubicin (TSL-DOX) delivery in mouse tumors with three HT methods... Read more
