Alternating electric fields or tumor treating fields (TTFields) therapy, is a type of electromagnetic field therapy to treat cancer, particularly recurrent glioblastoma. TTFields therapy delivers low-intensity electric currents through arrays on the scalp and has demonstrated good results compared to traditional methods. However, the precise distribution of TTFields within the brain, and the extent to which they cover the recurrent glioblastoma, remains poorly understood. Computational simulation from medical image data offers a solution for analyzing the effect of TTFields therapy for the treatment of glioblastoma. Simpleware software was used to generate models for this purpose.
