Optimizing cancer patient follow-up strategies using simulations

This paper proposes using simulations to optimize cancer patient follow-up. A model of cancer progression is controlled by selecting treatments and visit times to minimize impacts on quality of life. Efficient simulation algorithms help optimize these complex decisions based on limited patient data over time.
