From creation to compliance a radiology report interacts with three key Users - Radiologist, Clinician, and Patient
Radiologist Interprets Imaging Study and Generates Report
I spent a decade learning to interpret medical images
Clinician uses the report diagnose and treat the patient
The report is critical to helping my patients. Many times I'm dealing with patients outside my specialty
Patients have an almost mythic trust in their medical images
I got the results of my CT today. It was so shocking, I don't think I took it all in. And I have so many questions that I didn't think to ask. Should I get a second opinion?
Hundreds if not thousands of images are reduced to a 6 - 8 line Impression in a Report. Clinicians and patients rely on these 50 - 100 words to direct treatment
43% of the time, the clinicians diagnosis will be different if there is a f2f meeting with the radiologist vs. just reading the report. Providing additional information (as f2f meetings are often impractical) yields real benefits
Patients don't have the training to understand the language and terms in their report. An Interactive Report will help patients recall what they have been told and educate themselves
