Computer-assisted volumetric tumour assessment for the evaluation of patient response in malignant pleural mesothelioma

Abstract:

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a form of aggressive tumour that is almost always associated with prior exposure to asbestos. Currently responsible for over 47,000 deaths worldwide each year and rising, it poses a serious threat to global public health.
