Gestures Table

Caption: This table shows hand gestures surgeons might use in the operating room to browse and display medical images of the patient during an operation. Surgeons routinely need to review medical images and records during surgery, but stepping away from the operating table and touching a keyboard and mouse can delay the surgery and increase the risk of spreading infection-causing bacteria (Purdue University photo).
