Revision as of 16:11, 17 December 2009

The RSNA has established a Radiology Reporting Committee to identify and promote "best practices" in radiology reporting. The Committee, part of the Radiology Informatics Committee, includes radiologists and imaging informatics experts. The Reporting Committee is closely linked to RSNA's Quality Improvement Committee and RadLex® Steering Committee.


Download the New Radiology Report Templates

The RSNA Reporting Committee is pleased to announce the publication of 70 best-practices radiology report templates. We hope you will take the time to download and review these templates for use in your practice, and to encourage your colleagues to do the same.

Background

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.
  • December 2009: Released the first set of reporting templates, freely available for downloading and use.

Information for Reporting Template Developers

The information below is presented to aid radiologists and others who are developing reporting templates.


Technical Resources

  • 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.


References

We are constructing a bibliography of structured reporting in radiology.
