360 - degree videos, also known as immersive videos or spherical videos, are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time

Cancer patient’s surgery captured on 360-degree film for ‘immersive’ viewing © Cancer Research UK The seven-hour footage of Janet Jenkins’s operation has been condensed into a four-minute 360-degree video (Cancer Research UK/PA) New technology has allowed the public to “immerse themselves” in a cancer operating theatre for the first time in the UK by filming surgery on 360-degree video.

Cameras set up by Cancer Research UK filmed a seven-hour procedure on Janet Jenkins, 66, who had oesophageal cancer.

The surgery involved removing part of her oesophagus and a cancerous tumour within it, reconstructing her stomach to form a “new” oesophagus and reattaching it to the upper part of her chest.

Doctor jailed for sexually assaulting patients, including children

Doctor jailed for sexually assaulting patients, including children A 71-year-old doctor has been jailed for 10 and a half years for sexually assaulting 15 patients, including children, over a 20 year period. Former GP Alan Tutin, from Tonbridge, Kent, groped women and girls who had booked appointments for minor illnesses, including a sore throat, a mole and for the contraceptive pill. He targeted a 12-year-old girl, looking for help with a cold, who was only unaccompanied because her mother had died just a few months earlier.

In the emerging genre of 360 - degree cameras, anything goes, and the product you choose will depend as much on what kind of activities you want to capture as the quality of the camera itself. Is the 360 - degree format still a novelty? Yes, probably, but standards are being raised quickly, with 4K

The operation, which is only suitable for about one in three people who have oesophageal cancer, was carried out at the University of Southampton by Professor Tim Underwood.

Prof Underwood, head of cancer sciences at Southampton, has developed a new system called “drop sequencing” to determine the genetic makeup of a tumour environment.

Twenty patients have taken part in the research so far.

She is now cancer-free but continues to have treatment, and said she felt  “strangely removed” when she watched the video herself.

“I think it’s really important, not only to give people an insight into what happens to a patient undergoing treatment and what they can expect, but also to show why research and the work being done by Cancer Research UK is so vital for patients like me in the future,” she said.

Prof Underwood said: “This 360 film gives people the chance to immerse themselves inside a theatre during major surgery – something that has previously been hidden behind closed doors.

“We want to break down that barrier and show people what we are doing and how the money they raise for Cancer Research UK is helping us advance in finding better treatments for patients in the future.

“The real magic happens after surgery – which is in many ways the easy bit – when we get the specimens back to the lab.

“By understanding more about the cancers we are removing we can develop more targeted and effective treatments that will give patients personalised care.”

In 2015, about 9,200 people in the UK were diagnosed with oesophageal cancer.

It is the 13th most common cancer in adults.
