Glioma follow white matter tracts: a multiscale DTI-based model

Gliomas are a class of rarely curable tumors arising from abnormal glia cells in the human brain. The understanding of glioma spreading patterns is essential for both radiological therapy as well as surgical treatment. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) allows to infer the white matter fibre structure o...
