  • Reviewed profiles in preparation for selecting package of work items for development in 2011
  • Allows exchange of templates in vendor-independent format, encouraging adoption of structured templates to generate higher quality, more uniform reports
  • Would support RSNA Reporting Committee and RadLex work in defining templates and controlled vocabulary for radiology reporting
  • Dr. Langlotz willing to lead editorial team and will bring additional resources to work
  • Work is likely to be significant for all the diagnostic specialties; radiology will lead but also communicate with cardiology, eye care, lab, etc.
  • Uses DICOM standards to manage image sets across sites, including synchronization and acknowledgments, delete and replace functions
  • Addresses problems encountered in areas where distributed PACS has been deployed, notably in Canadian Health System
  • Agfa willing to lead team; will get help from DICOM experts, including Fred Behlen
  • Uses emerging DICOM UPS worklist standard to streamline reporting and potentially post-processing
  • Depends on emerging DICOM standard and SIIM TRIP work outcomes
  • Proposed Slates
Proposals under Consideration Editor Effort Tag
Management of Radiology Report Templates - Detailed Proposal C. Langlotz

The following "slates of work" were proposed, listing a group of proposals and the estimated Tech Cmte bandwith. Slates significantly over 100% must indicate a ("below the line" proposal) which is to be dropped if the Tech Cmte runs into bandwidth problems.

Slate 1 - A1 B D E = 105%

Slate 2 - A1 (A2) B D E = 125%

Slate 3 - B D E = 85%

Slate 4 - (A1) B C E = 115%

Slate 5 - A1 C (D) E = 110%

Slate 6 - A1 A2 B E = 95%
