Their first model considers the case when the patient does not have the right to reject an organ. This model also assumes that there are n transplant candidates with various types to be assigned to n kidneys, which arrive sequentially−one kidney in each period. The type of kidney arriving at time t is a random variable {Xt }nt=1 , where {Xt }nt=1 are independent and identically distributed with probability measure P over the space of possible types X . There are m patient types where the proportion of type i candidates is denoted by pi .

K, Δ}, where state 0 is the good or no tumor state and state Δ is absorbing and represents the failure state defined as sickness that is apparent to the individual. , increasing tumor size, but the condition is not recognized by the individual). They defined Xt as the state of the deterioration process at time t and Tn as the time of the nth transition where T0 = 0. {Xt ; t ≥ 0} is an increasing process with the Markov transition matrix P (i, j) = P XTn+1 = j|XTn = i where P (i, j) = 0 if j ≤ i.

19]; Mathew et al. [24]). Peer et al. report that in patients younger than 50, tumors have a median doubling time of 80 days, whereas the tumors in patients ages 50 to 70 have a median doubling time of 157 days, and tumors in patients older than 70 have a median doubling time of 188 days (Michaelson et al. [25]). Screening for women with increased risk The ACS guidelines admit that the age at which screening should be initiated for women at high risk is not well established and speculate that women at increased risk might benefit from additional screening strategies beyond those offered to women of average risk, such as earlier initiation of screening, shorter screening intervals, or the addition of screening modalities (such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)).
