A Novel Method for Simulating the Extracellular Matrix in Models of Tumour Growth

Figure 3

Simulation results for the proposed model ((1a), (1b), (1c)) at points in time 50 h, 150 h, 250 h, and 350 h. The initial condition of the nutrients is given by the blood vessel placed at the left side and at the bottom of the domain and are shown in the third row. The extracellular matrix is initialised with a constant value and is illustrated in the second row. For the cancerous cells in the first row light grey represents necrotic tissue, dark grey quiescent cells and black proliferating and migrating cells. The colouration for the remaining data is given in the colour bar.
