An Integrated Computational/Experimental Model of Lymphoma Growth

Figure 4

Representation of the lymph node by the computational model.

(A) Diagram highlighting a typical lymph node structure. (B) Simulation output from the model showing an incipient tumor (dark red) forming in the center of the node. Afferent lymphatic vessels are collectively represented as one incoming tube on the top, and the efferent vessel is at the bottom. (C) The simulated distribution of oxygen (brown color) released by the blood vasculature within the node remains uniform at this initial stage.
