The use of computer simulation is arguably more widespread in other industries than in medicine. However, it has filtered into mainstream use in radiation therapy via a commercial product born from collaborative research partnership based in a radiation therapy department .The benefits and potentials of simulation training is discussed in this editorial from the perspective of an experienced radiation therapy physicist.

An immersive virtual reality (VR) simulation clinic with dynamic patient interaction and communication was developed to facilitate the training of medical radiation science students. The software "CET...
Although continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is common, unplanned interruptions (UI) often limit its usefulness. In many units, nurses are responsible for CRRT management. We hypothesized that...
Error identification in radiation therapy is critical to maintain a safe and efficient therapeutic environment. A verification simulation (VS; also called a dry run for patient information) provides a...
A need for improved education and training for hospital staff caring for patients in the last year of life was identified at an urban UK hospital. Sequential Simulation (SqS Simulation™) is a type o...
The investigators aim to test a curriculum of non-technical skills (NTS) training for simulation-based training of colonoscopy. There is no known literature to date on the optimal approach...
Rationale: Computer systems that allow doctors to create a 3 dimensional (3-D) picture of the tumor may help in planning radiation therapy and may result in more tumor cells being killed. ...
The investigators hypothesise that simulation-based training will have initial educational benefits and in coherence with the traditional apprenticeship model will heighten the educational...
Comparison of success rates of novice surgeons to attain proficiency in basic arthroscopy skills after receiving prior training with different simulation systems.
The computer-based training program (CBT for CBT) focuses on teaching basic coping skills, presenting examples of effective use of coping skills in a number of realistic situations in vide...
Computer-based representation of physical systems and phenomena such as chemical processes.
Computer systems or programs used in accurate computations for providing radiation dosage treatment to patients.
Computer systems utilized as adjuncts in the treatment of disease.
A controlled learning environment that closely represents reality.
A computer simulation technique that is used to model the interaction between two molecules. Typically the docking simulation measures the interactions of a small molecule or ligand with a part of a larger molecule such as a protein.
