Apart from the radiation-oncologist a couple of other people will come to meet you.
The care coordinator will familiarise you with the hospital. She’ll make sure that all of your questions end up at the right person.
There is also a pediatric oncologist who will examine you. Ask as many questions as you like.
It is important you can keep very still during the treatment.
Before the treatment can be started, we need to make a scan with a CT-simulator. On a CT-simulator you have to lie in the exact same position as on the radiation machine. With the help of these images, the doctors can make a plan tailored to your treatment. This process is called the CT-simulation.
Sometimes contrast fluid needs to be administered for taking the images. This way the machine will show even better what is happening inside your body. This fluid is administered via your drip or catheter.
