Background

  • A brief article in the Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers Alliance (QIBA) Quarterly newsletter

Progress

  • June 2008: RSNA convened a workshop to plan the future of radiology reporting. More than 50 radiologists, medical informatics specialists, and representatives of cardiology, oncology, and pathology participated. Consensus was reached on a global template for diagnostic radiology reports, including standardized radiology report headings.
  • March 2009: Formed 13 subcommittees to create templates for specific clinical areas in collaboration with subspecialty professional organizations.
  • May 2009: Conducted an industry forum for radiology reporting vendors, attended by 20 vendor representatives. Slide presentations from that meeting are available.
  • October 2010: A proposal to develop a template exchange profile was approved by the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE). This profile will enable radiologists to download templates from a template library directly into their favorite reporting system. It also will facilitate the vendor independent migration of templates between reporting systems.

Technical Resources for Reporting Template Developers

  • RSNA RadLex radiology vocabulary. Terms in reporting templates will be mapped to RadLex and other controlled vocabularies.
  • Synoptic Reporting code site. The College of American Pathologists offers their "Electronic Cancer Checklists" (eCC) using the RELAX-NG language for XML documents.
