The Doubling Time & Progression Calculator can be used for the following purposes:
- Calculation of tumor marker – doubling time
To calculate tumor marker – doubling time with the data of serial measurements of a serum tumor marker.
- Calculation of tumor volume – doubling time
To calculate tumor volume – doubling time with the data of serial measurements of tumor sizes.
- Estimation of time for progression
To estimate the time (T) for a tumor with a known doubling time (DT) of size A to grow to size B.
If you input DT, A, and B, the calculator gives T.
- Estimation of progression over time
To estimate the time D after a given time (T) of a tumor of size C with a known doubling time(DT).
If you input DT, C, and T, the calculator gives D.
