Summary: Nursing in radiology is a relatively new field of work, which requires specific skills to provide assistance at different levels of adult and pediatric health care. The adequacy of this work process using management tools is necessary as the team can reformulate it in favor of the quality of care provided to the user. Objectives: To describe the elaboration process of a nursing protocol for patients undergoing computed tomography. Methodology: This is an applied research study of qualitative nature. The study was developed at the Diagnostic Imaging Unit of a university hospital in Southeastern Brazil, with members of the nursing team working in radiology as participants. Data were collected from March to June 2021, through focus groups, discussions using the brainstorming technique and construction of the problem tree to problematize the work process. Data were analyzed using thematic-categorical content analysis. Results: From the analysis of the content of the seminars, two categories emerged: knowledge and checking. The Knowledge category includes knowledge that subsidizes nursing actions for safe and quality care for patients undergoing computed tomography. In the Checking category, precautions that contribute to patient safety during the examination were highlighted, such as: checking the patient´s identification, preparation, history of allergies, venous access and the resources needed for the day. The products of this research were the construction of the protocol for nursing care in computed tomography and, as a scientific production, two scientific articles were elaborated.
