The concept

The concept of this website is based on a previous site that was founded in 2008 and is still up and running. The website is composed as a book, where all sources are properly referenced, according to a good practice in scientific publications.

    Doubling time - calculation of growth rate of a lesion or a mass

    Calculating doubling time of focal lesions or massess can give a hint, whether it has a malignant or rather benign growth dynamics. Doubling time of malignant lesions is between 30 and 500 days with a median of 100 days.

    Calculate    
    First examination Date (d/m/yy)
    Diameter [mm]
    Second examination Date (d/m/yy)  
    Diameter [mm]
