This work addresses the question of making predictions on the remission time patients suffering from brain tumors (gliomas) may expect after a radiotherapy treatment. It is a very crucial question often asked by patient’s to their practician in order to plan some important life projects (as traveling, retiring, having children) but that is difficult to answer since there is a large variability among patient reactions to radiotherapy. We then build a statistical model using the recorded evolution of the glioma size of previously treated patients. It allows, for the first time, to make these predictions, with a few months accuracy.
