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


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


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


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


10-year-old Matthew is back in hospital.


In September 2014, I suffered from extreme hydrocephalus,


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


The op was a success and to help him recover,


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


The scanning machine can be quite a scary experience


The scanner itself can take up to an hour.


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


the scanner actually starts, it's incredibly loud.


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


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


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


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


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


using strong magnets and radio waves producing detailed images


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


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


Matthew is one of the kids helping the doctors put


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


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


giving the complete MRI experience of the scan.


I was really interested in virtual reality.


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


I can take some images from inside the scanner to allow


the child to experience a scan virtual reality beforehand


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


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


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


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


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


They were destroyed by Bayern Munich 5-1.


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


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


Arjen Robben scored first for Bayern...


..before Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez equalised.


COMMENTATOR: Sanchez on the follow-up!


But things really fell apart in the second half.


COMMENTATOR: That is simply outstanding from Bayern Munich!


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


Next to a much cooler sport, no literally.


We've got medal winning freestyle skier James Woods


Before we chat to you about Winter Olympics


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


this morning. Finally, just time to take a look


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


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


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


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


on CBBC this afternoon at 4:20pm.
