Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe the radiographers' perceptions of the patient care that is needed by the latter undergoing a computed tomography (CT) examination. The study was conducted using phenomenography methodology. Eight female and four male radiographers were interviewed at three radiology departments in central Sweden. The radiographers highlighted that the patients' need for information regarding the whole examination was important for them to understand the procedure. The radiographers' perception was that the time required for a CT examination needs to be adjusted so that there is sufficient time for individualized patient care, while at the same time taking into account the patient's age and illness. There was also a need for the examination to be carried out by a knowledgeable professional radiographer. In conclusion, this study shows that patients are in need of good communication, information, physical/psychological care, and individualized adapted examination time. Radiographers' knowledge and ability to understand patients' needs have a significant impact if patients are involved in their examination.
