Findings (cases)

The findings section of cases is where the description of that particular study is described. This section is located immediately below each study and findings contribute to case completeness

The findings section should contain a description of the whole study that should be similar to a radiology report. 

Some features that are usually present in radiology reports should, however, be omitted. Findings to exclude:

  • irrelevant negatives
  • common incidental findings that have no relevance or teaching purpose
    • e.g. chronic small vessel ischemic change (unless prominent)
    • e.g. degenerative change of the spine (unless relevant) 
  • measurements 

Older previously uploaded cases may have an image/stack specific findings section. This is no longer a feature for new cases and is being removed.
