We have developed a multimedia structured reporting system that creates a patient lifetime graph which can enhance the practice of diagnostic radiology.
Radiology is often practiced independent of information available from other medical specialties; however, the actions of other medical disciplines can have a profound impact upon the imaging studies that radiologists interpret. Despite the availability of electronic health records and PACS, there is often a disconnect between radiology reports, images, and clinical information. To facilitate the rapid review of a patient's entire medical history in an interactive format, we have developed a multimedia structured reporting system that can be applied to all medical specialties to generate a patient lifetime graph that depicts the occurences of medical events against a background of disease response criteria
We have developed a multimedia structured reporting system that is applicable to not only diagnostic radiology but other medical specialities including pathology, gastroenterology, oncology, radiation therapy, and surgery. The system works by capturing key images from any diagnostic or therapeutic process, tagging each image with metadata using an ontology, and assembling a multimedia structured report. The system can link image findings from serial exams derived from any medical discipline in unique graphical disease timelines. Finally, the sytem produces a patient lifetime graph which shows major medical events against a background of disease response criteria (e.g., Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors, RECIST).
Review of prior imaging exams, clinical information, and disease response criteria during a radiologist's analysis of new imaging exams can be a tedious and time-consuming process. We have developed a multimedia structured reporting system and patient lifetime graph concept that enables the rapid review of past medical events against a background of disease response criteria. We believe that this technology will improve the efficiency and accuracy of radiology reporting, and hence improve a radiologist's value in the healthcare enterprise.
