Radiographic features (article structure)

Last revised by Dr Daniel J Bell on 21 May 2019

Radiographic features is one of the main subheadings in most articles

The "Radiographic features" subheading is located after "Pathology" and before "Treatment and Prognosis".

Before any modality-specific features are discussed, general appearances should be included here. This helps in eliminating repetition from modality to modality as often these are just different ways of imaging the same macroscopic features.

The following subheadings are available as needed: 

  • do not write PET/CT, PETCT, PET CT, CT-PET, etc. 
  • if specific isotopes are mentioned then also see: isotope notation

Combinations of modalities are addressed under the first modality, which often reflects the main focus on this modality while using the second one for reference, e.g. PET-CT, US-CT.

The following articles are examples of an appropriate radiographic features section:
