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.

Mentions: Magnification – for asking the radiographers to magnify the image displayed on the CT monitor. Extend the middle three fingers of one hand and point the hand downwards to form the shape of the letter M. With the other hand, point up to indicate to the radiographers to zoom in (Fig. 3), and point down to indicate to the radiographers to zoom out.
