Radiology's Adoption of Structured Reporting
Main Article Content
Radiology reports are essential for patient care since referring doctors rely on them to choose the best course of treatment for their patients. Traditional narrative reports have a reputation for having an excessive amount of variation in their language, length, and style. This can reduce the clarity of the report and make it challenging for referring clinicians to locate the crucial information required for patient treatment. It has been suggested that structured reporting could be used to raise the calibre of radiology reports. This article provides a summary of the findings of the Association of University Radiologists—Radiology Research Alliance Structured Reporting Task Force's investigation into the present and potential future of structured reporting in radiology. We examine the benefits and drawbacks of structured radiology reports and talk about the opinions radiologists currently hold about these reports. We also go over the barriers to using structured reports and point up solutions for some of them. We also talk about how radiology reporting will develop in the era of customised medicine.
