Abstract

The objective of this paper was to share the experience of virtual simulation commissioning and its use in radiation therapy of head and neck cancers at Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic hospital. The first sixty three (63) head and neck cases planned on the virtual simulation station was analyzed as well as the impression of staff members after using the system. A semi structured survey revealed that staff was overall satisfied with the system. A follow-up study with more cases planned, however, is advised.
