Mould Room

For some treatment types or areas it may be necessary to have a device called a ‘shell’ or ‘mask’. This is used to keep mobile areas such as the head and neck area or limbs stable and still throughout treatment. 

The process of making these will differ depending on what area of the body is being treated, when you arrive the staff will explain the procedure fully before starting and answer any questions you may have.

These appointments can vary from around 15 to 45 minutes and although they are often performed on the same day as your CT planning scan, on occasion you may be required to attend for a separate appointment.
