What happens during the simulation?
It is very important to be as still as possible during simulation and the daily radiation treatments. During the simulation, special devices may be made to assist you in holding still.
Contrast dye may be administered orally or intravenously at the time of simulation to better visualize your anatomy. Please let your nurse know if you have had previous reactions to contrast. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire and sign a consent for contrast prior to the scan. On occasion we may ask that blood work be obtained prior to the administration of contrast material.
