Abstract

Transcribed reports are the radiologist's most conspicuous and enduring product, yet relatively little investigation of report quality has been undertaken by radiologists. This paper reports the results of a survey of 266 referring physicians in an academic children's hospital regarding their needs and assessments of the quality of radiology reporting. The results outline the range and relative importance of report features from referring physicians' points of view, provide specific suggestions for how to improve reporting performance, and generally indicate that reporting should receive more attention in training and practice than it currently does.
