Hello, it's Thursday, I'm Ayshah. Coming up this morning...

:00:00.:00:07.

Virtual reality - it's the tech that can transport you to other worlds -

:00:08.:00:24.

and now VR is being used to help kids, needing special

:00:25.:00:27.

hospital scans, to relax. Here's Ricky...

:00:28.:00:33.

10-year-old Matthew is back in hospital.

:00:34.:00:37.

In September 2014, I suffered from extreme hydrocephalus,

:00:38.:00:41.

which means a build-up of fluid in the brain.

:00:42.:00:45.

The op was a success and to help him recover,

:00:46.:00:51.

he has to have regular brain scans to check that all is good.

:00:52.:00:55.

The scanning machine can be quite a scary experience

:00:56.:00:57.

The scanner itself can take up to an hour.

:00:58.:01:08.

You have to stay incredibly still in a small space and once

:01:09.:01:11.

the scanner actually starts, it's incredibly loud.

:01:12.:01:13.

Is everything OK in there, Matthew? Yeah, all fine.

:01:14.:01:15.

Now, I feel OK because I have had it a few times now.

:01:16.:01:21.

The first time I remember, I was thinking to myself,

:01:22.:01:23.

Because no one had showed me it but in the end,

:01:24.:01:27.

MRIs can help doctors find out if a person has any problems

:01:28.:01:38.

using strong magnets and radio waves producing detailed images

:01:39.:01:40.

Experts at Kings College Hospital have come up with a way to prepare

:01:41.:01:52.

children by copying an MRI scan with this app and a virtual

:01:53.:01:55.

Matthew is one of the kids helping the doctors put

:01:56.:02:01.

This is the MRI scan we are going to use today.

:02:02.:02:07.

The app uses panoramic 360 degree videos, taken inside the scanner,

:02:08.:02:10.

giving the complete MRI experience of the scan.

:02:11.:02:13.

I was really interested in virtual reality.

:02:14.:02:19.

I had a 360 degree camera for Christmas and I thought maybe

:02:20.:02:22.

I can take some images from inside the scanner to allow

:02:23.:02:25.

the child to experience a scan virtual reality beforehand

:02:26.:02:27.

to prepare them for the scan, so it is not so scary

:02:28.:02:30.

The best way to cope with it, I think, is to close your eyes.

:02:31.:02:40.

Hopefully, this app will really help and just don't worry about it.

:02:41.:02:48.

Now to the REALITY that Arsenal look set to be knocked out

:02:49.:02:52.

of the Champions League at the last-16 stage again.

:02:53.:02:57.

They were destroyed by Bayern Munich 5-1.

:02:58.:03:02.

COMMENTATOR: There's Robben on the move looking to pick

:03:03.:03:05.

out the top corner! What a goal! That is simply brilliant!

:03:06.:03:07.

Arjen Robben scored first for Bayern...

:03:08.:03:10.

..before Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez equalised.

:03:11.:03:11.

COMMENTATOR: Sanchez on the follow-up!

:03:12.:03:14.

But things really fell apart in the second half.

:03:15.:03:19.

COMMENTATOR: That is simply outstanding from Bayern Munich!

:03:20.:03:24.

Arsenal now have a lot of work to do in the second leg match.

:03:25.:03:33.

Next to a much cooler sport, no literally.

:03:34.:03:35.

We've got medal winning freestyle skier James Woods

:03:36.:03:37.

Before we chat to you about Winter Olympics

:03:38.:03:40.

and all other sorts of things, shall we have a quick

:03:41.:03:43.

You have a cool job, don't you? Yeah! I am glad you think so too.

:03:44.:04:18.

You have just come back from a gold medal. Yes, pretty happy. The X

:04:19.:04:26.

games is a massive deal, the biggest event in free skiing, so I am happy.

:04:27.:04:38.

That was in Big Air. And slopestyle, that's my two main things. Tell me

:04:39.:04:49.

about Big Air. It is about flipping and trying to make it look good. We

:04:50.:04:57.

have the Winter Olympics coming up. You excited? Absolutely. It will be

:04:58.:05:02.

very exciting, a massive event, lots of people watching, it should be

:05:03.:05:09.

great. The last thing we have the Winter Olympics in Sochi, you had an

:05:10.:05:15.

injury? Yes, I was all ready to go but I unfortunately got hurt in the

:05:16.:05:21.

practice sessions leading up to the competition. I limped through but I

:05:22.:05:26.

was lucky enough to be able to compete. I will be back! Something

:05:27.:05:33.

to prove this time. Definitely, best of luck. Thank you for joining us

:05:34.:05:34.

this morning. Finally, just time to take a look

:05:35.:05:36.

at these cute otters. These four pups from Newquay Zoo,

:05:37.:05:40.

are learning how to swim. They're getting some top lessons

:05:41.:05:43.

from their parents and their uncles, and I think their doing pretty

:05:44.:05:45.

swimmingly! That's all from me, Newsround's back

:05:46.:05:49.

on CBBC this afternoon at 4:20pm.
