Hold your BreathThis is a featured page

Please add to this page:

One of the most commonly used phrases in radiography is "Breathe in and hold your breath" followed by "Breathe away". The breath-hold technique is used to minimise movement unsharpness or to inflate the lungs completely with air. With thousands of languages in the world (Papua New Guinea has over 700), it is not uncommon to find yourself with a patient who does not speak your language.

Lets develop this page with the phrase "Breathe in and hold your breath" in as many languages as possible!
