Abstract

Radiology practice guidelines have been developed to help radiologists achieve quality and safety in their clinical practice. One means to promote the use of practice guidelines in radiology is through the wider use of reporting templates, also known as "structured reporting." This article presents specific examples in which radiology reporting templates can promote adherence to guidelines, gather data for quality improvement efforts, and facilitate compliance with performance incentive programs.
