The CompuTumor associated team has been funded early 2007. This project is dedicated to the study of brain tumor models and their integration with medical images to better assist diagnosis and therapy. The project strongly relies on the current collaborations between INRIA and world leading teams with complementary technical and clinical expertise in Boston and Nice.
In 2008, the work on DTI processing was continued and extended  ,  . New algorithms were developped to assess the growth of slowly evolving tumors  . Ongoing work aims at coupling models and images to infer quantitative tumor paramters that could be used for therapy planning.
