Standardisation of acquisition methods and reporting

ø

Many Internists rely on the radiologist’s report and not the images to assess their patient, which makes it important to standardize reports.

just as pathologists do. Radiological options today allow for things such as screening, minimallyinvasive treatments or monitoring findings. As more and more of medical diagnosis require imaging, there is an increased need for improved workflows that facilitate communication and education to be reflected on better patient care. Internists rely on a good radiology service for success.

Radiology has also been enhanced by increased interconnectivity and communication among devices including mobile systems. Seamless integration of diagnostic data is still aspirational, but with digital pathology now normal, and digital image transfer acting as a base for automated reporting, we are getting closer. Roche and GE’s Navify platform is a good example which promises to simplify the decision making in cancer care with a single workflow.

As more and more of medical diagnosis need some sort of imaging, there’s still a need for an improved workflow that facilitates communication and education to be reflected on better patient care.
