The bright sky in Radiosurgery

CoeLux®, able to reproduce natural light in closed environments

It’s called CoeLux® the technology that Humanitas has chosen to bring into the Radiosurgery department, promoting maximum patient comfort during treatments. CoeLux® enables the exact reproduction of natural light and the image of the sun and sky within closed environments that light could never reach. With CoeLux®, areas absent of natural light become virtual spaces with an infinite dimension of light. This is how CoeLux® has a positive psychological and physiological effect on patients, reducing the anxiety one feels when closed in; underground or in windowless areas.


“Wasn’t it a cloudy day? How is it that the sun is out?” - This is what one patient asked Dr. Piero Picozzi, head of the Gamma Knife department at Humanitas, upon entering. “The effects of the produced blue sky and the shining sun are so real, I often find myself explaining to patients that it’s fake. In the bunkers, where the areas must be dark to protect the technicians against radiation, the patients, especially the claustrophobic ones, are negatively impacted by stress. The light is therapeutic, improving the patients’ mood, causing them to smile which is important when facing a difficult illness.”
