Learn how to improve the quality, style and usefulness of your radiology reports.

The radiology report was broken down into a few different aspects and situations. Each lecture looked into one aspect (for e.g. how to communicate findings and express probability in a report), presented the evidence on that topic and provided recommendations and tips on how to improve the report.

At the end of the video, you should be able to be much more aware of the various constituents that go into a report. You will have better knowledge of the evidence behind the many aspects of the report with a range of tools to analyse your own and others’ reports, including thinking of way of improving them.

Topics covered during the event:

  1. The role of the radiology report
  2. Structure of reports and the role of structured reporting 
  3. Style of the report
  4. Common mistakes to avoid in the report
  5. How to communicate findings and express probability
  6. What referrers want in a radiology report. 

Educational aims:

  • To gain knowledge about the evidence underlying the many components of the report
  • To learn new ways of analysing reports and improving them
