Abstract

A radiology report is the official record documenting the contribution of a radiologist to a patient's care. The use of structured reports and a common lexicon will help referring physicians better understand the contents of reports. These same features in electronic health records will enable radiologists to mine reports for utilization management information as well as form the basis for clinical investigations.
