Targeting a Tumor - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V12 I2

By devising a new computational method that tracks the flow of therapeutic drug particles in an aerosol from the lips to the lungs, researchers can deposit a drug on a targeted lung tumor with 90 percent efficiency. This is a major improvement over the 20 percent efficiency of conventional aerosol treatment methods. One key to the success of this new computational method is the development of a human digital twin that can be made patient-specific using the real geometry of the patient’s lungs..
