This article discusses the relevance of computer modeling to the management of prostate cancer. Several computer modeling techniques are reviewed and the advantages and disadvantages of each are discussed. An example that uses a computer model to compare alternative strategies for clinically localized prostate cancer is examined in detail. The quality of the data used in computer models is critical, and these models play an important role in medical decision making.
