"Virtual reality allows neurosurgery patients to ‘tour’ their own brains" PBS NewsHour 1/9/2019


SUMMARY:  Over the past year, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital has been pioneering a virtual reality technology that enables pediatric patients, and their parents, to “tour” their brains before surgery.  Special correspondent Cat Wise reports on how this 3-D platform may help young patients with epilepsy and brain tumors reduce their fears and anxieties before surgery, and maybe even yield an "epiphany."
