Health system moves from text-only to AI-powered interactive multimedia radiology reports

November 12, 2018 / Bill Siwicki

The radiology report is the principle work product of the radiologist. Until recently, reports describing findings in imaging studies have been plain, text-only documents. Such reports are increasingly inadequate. “Traditional radiology reports are limited to plain-text in order to simplify the transport of results across information systems,” said Dr. Cree Gaskin, associate chief medical information officer and vice-chair of informatics and operations, division director of musculoskeletal imaging, at the University of Virginia Health System in Keswick, Virginia. “One cost is that report consumers are often stuck reviewing blocks of bland text in one system, and comparing to the images themselves in another system.”
