In order to do the radiation planning what we start off with is that you come over to the Radiation Center, and we’ll take you into a CT scan room, where we will make and set you up in the position that you’re going to need to be in for your treatment –whether you need to be on a special sort of bed to position your body in the right place, or to make a mask of your head and neck, if that’s where we’re doing treatment. So we make that in a CT scan room, it’s like any of the CTs that are done for diagnostic, but these ones are just for positioning you for treatment. In some cases we also do a scanning MRI, which also helps us behind the scenes to map out your treatment. Most kids when they’re having their CT planning can wear their normal clothes. The only thing they can’t have on is anything that’s metal in the field of the radiation that we’re going to be doing the CT scan, just like any diagnostic CT scan. Also we may have you put on a gown. But usually if you wear clothes that are loose-fitting and don’t have any metal in them, you can pretty much stay in your clothes for the planning for the radiation, and for the treatment of the radiation. There are certain ways that you can prepare your child for coming for these sessions. When the teaching is first done, we’ll show you some pictures so you get an idea of where you’re coming, what the CT scan looks like, what the mask looks like, what the special bag looks like, that you may need for treatment. When it comes time to doing your scan we’ll go through things again, so you have a good understanding of what to expect and what’s going to happen on that day. Also you’ll be given your appointment for coming for your first treatment, that usually starts within a week or two of the CT scan planning.
