“It is hoped hearing instructions in a familiar language will help patients feel more relaxed in what is a potentially stressful situation. Experts think it could also help those with dementia.”
Examples of new Doric instructions include:
- “The neist scan’ll tak five minties”: The next scan will take five minutes.
- “Hud yer breath”: Hold your breath.
- “In a’tween the neist puckle o’ scans the table will move aboot”: In between the next few scans the table will move about.
