Radiology report (article structure)

Last revised by Jeremy Jones on 7 Jun 2017

Radiology report is one of the main subheadings that can be included in many articles. It pertains to practical tips on how to report the relevant condition or finding and can be used to address how to deal with incidental findings.

It should not be an exhaustive reporting template nor include standard reports. 

The "Radiology reports" subheading is located after "Radiographic features" and before "Treatment and prognosis"

Although no single structure has been mandated, usually this section will start with an introductory sentence and then break down the pertinent points as a nested bulleted list

Important: if recommending that a finding requires no follow-up or further imaging, or if you suggest that a finding should not be mentioned in a report, then it is mandatory to have it referenced to something that unambiguously supports that statement.
