We present the derivation of a CTMC with levels model of diusion in cylindrical coordinates from the partial dierential equation for Fick's law. The resulting model abstracts both molar concentration, by discrete levels, and spatial location, by discrete compartments. We apply the results to the diusion of nitric oxide in human vessels and illustrate with simulations in the PRISM tool.
