Results:
Stereoscopic visualization, which allows a left eye image to project to the left eye and a right eye image to project to the right eye and allows the visual system to merge the two images resulting in the perception of depth, provides clinically relevant information to the radiation oncologist. It was felt that the added information provided by allowing the visualization of the relationship of the target to the normal structures with visualization of isodose curves with depth perception, added significant clinical information in all 10 cases. This added information did not result in the radiation oncologist changing his dose constraints in all plans but did provide added assurance that his plans were safe and acceptable.
