Radiological Reporting in Clinical Practice (Paperback)
Due to the diverse diagnostic imaging techniques available, radiologic examinations are made of an enormous amount of images. The radiologist is also expected to write a report with a diversified language, according to diagnostic technique(s), population type (client vs. patient; pediatric, adult, geriatric), pathology, and across all body areas. This means that the elements to be described and interpreted by the radiologist are sometimes exorbitant. In this book, the authors suggest a shared methodology to bring as much uniformity as possible to the way of writing a radiologic report, and how to most effectively communicate the results of an examination. The important role played by language from a legal-forensic point of view is also considered, and theoretical knowledge is transferred to everyday clinical practice. The book provides the perfect tool for radiologists in a very accessible format.
