Motivated by radiotherapy and hadrontherapy improvement we consider in a first step the potential of a simple elastic mechanical modelling to simulate lung deformations and motions during respiration, towards tumour tracking.<div></div> Two approaches are presented: one is the finite-element based method and the other is the mass-spring system. For these approaches, we suggest a personalisation based on the measurement of physical and geometrical data for each patient.
