Testimonials

"The unknown is where fear and dragons lie.."

“I think pearl is a good idea for patients to see. It would put their mind at rest which is good for their treatment.”

“Really good idea and should be shown to all patients before CT scan.”

“Yes – very important for patients to fully understand the importance of bladder and bowels. Visual demo very useful. Should be shown at CT scan.”

‘Virtual reality technology is an excellent way forward to provide, amongst other, information to patients receiving radiotherapy on how their treatment is planned and given.

The possibility for them and their relatives to receive this extra knowledge in 3D reduces their anxieties, and relatives feel more involved in the treatment of their loved ones. ’

Dr Josep Sulé-Suso MB ChB, PhD Associate Specialist and Senior Lecturer in Oncology, Cancer Centre, University Hospital of North Staffordshire and Keele University

 

 ‘I now understand how radiotherapy is planned and given and it has helped me and my partner to reduce our fear factor. ’
