In an effort to help patients undergoing painful or otherwise stressful interventional radiology procedures, Dr. David Waldman, chairman of the University of Rochester Medical Center's imaging sciences department, studied how wearing video glasses during a procedure affected the patients. Half of patients chose a video and watched it on video glasses during their procedure while the other group did not have the glasses. The patients who used the glasses reported 18% less anxiety after the procedure, compared with those in the control group who reported 5.5% less anxiety.
