Vertual brings the linac into the classroom

When pilots learn to fly a plane, they train on a flight simulator that artificially re-creates the aircraft environment – enabling them to hone their skills and practise expected and, importantly, unexpected flight scenarios with zero risk. So why not employ the same approach for radiotherapy? That’s the underlying premise of VERT (virtual environment for radiation therapy training) – a training simulator developed by UK company Vertual.
