STOR-i schools

December 2018

As part of the STOR-i schools programme students learnt about ‘Radiotherapy treatment planning, a few things that can go wrong’. Through a quick game of articulate, a video of the treatment equipment made of lego and students estimating the area of their feet they learnt about the complicated process of radiotherapy from diagnosis to treatment. The session included many examples of how error and uncertainty arise in the process and a demonstration using real CT scans to show how everything linked up. The most excitement came when students discovered that there was a practical use to matrices and that I use them every day in my research.
