Preparing for Radiation

This is the machine they use to give radiation. The flat board in front of it changes shape (has all kinds of attachments) depending on the part of the body being radiated. For mine, I get a little space to put my head, like you do when you get a massage. That is what is pictured here. Then the board (with your body on it) slides under that big round disk. High on the walls are little black boxes. A laser shoots from these and should hit my tattoos; that helps them figure out whether I am in the right position, then they start the radiation.
