Radiotherapy Lasers

Lasers are used in radiotherapy ( radiation therapy ) treatment to ensure the patient is in the correct position for treatment. They are mounted on the walls and the ceiling.

Normally they are set to come on when the treatment room lights are dimmed, so you may not even notice them! If you want to see how the radiographers use them, ask and I'm sure they will be happy to show you.
