Rights and Permissions

We review the evolution of the concept of informed consent from a radiology standpoint, the current international guidelines on the need for obtaining consent in diagnostic radiology practice, and the current Indian scenario, focusing on both practical and medicolegal aspects. We discuss the concept of patient information sheet with signature, a potential way forward benefiting both patients and radiologists.
