In order to increase patient education,  the use of 3D models was introduced for glioma patients in collaboration with the Radboudumc Technology Center 3D lab. Patients who are being prepared for surgery with intra-operative monitoring (e.g. awake surgery) were educated about the risks and treatment options by using 3D models to picture tumor-function relations. Qualitative analyses showed barriers and facilitators of such use and positive and negative effects were investigated.
