Sign language in the CT suite: a new approach in communicating between radiologists and radiographers

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

When performing CT‐guided procedures or angiographic procedures, radiologists performing procedures need to communicate with radiographers at a workstation behind radiation shielding glass. As shielding renders verbal communication impossible, we have developed a set of standardised hand signals for use at our department to help us achieve clear and efficient communication between radiologists and radiographers while performing CT‐guided or angiographic procedures.
