(A) Tumor radius; (B) blood area fraction, defined as ratio of the vasculature to the tumor area, (C) average vascular flow rate; and (D) average wall shear rate. In (C) and (D), bars denote SEM (standard error of the mean) values estimated over the number of vessel segments in the tumor area (e.g., on day 24, the numbers were 6677 new vessel and 917 pre-existing vessel segments).
