Abstract

The paper contains the main lines of the modeling of a prototype for both medical and economical evaluation of radiotherapy centers using innovative therapies. We consider uncertainties according to patients and hospital complexes participating in the study. The corresponding part of the tool is called recruitment model. It evaluates a theoretical number of patients interested in treatments of one center, using spatialization into a context of competition. Moreover we developed a scheduling model, described brie?y here and two shortly presented economical models in charge of the evaluation of the average price per treatment and the comparison between different radiotherapy strategies. We present preliminary results of the recruitment model.
