RadioReports' interface was awarded with the red dot design award in 2021 for its intuitive and user-centric desgin.

Radiologists devote 80% of their time to reports

which reduces the time for patient care.

Radiology reporting, a critical aspect of radiological practice, has traditionally been a time-consuming and manual process.

The conventional reporting process has its flaws. Although dictating free-text reports may feel fast, studies indicate that on average, 17.4 minutes are required for an MRI report.1 Meanwhile, scan times have become significantly shorter than reporting times.

In addition to the time issue, there is also a quality problem. Studies reveal high variability among radiologists when interpreting the same image datasets.2 Furthermore, referring physicians often express dissatisfaction with conventionally dictated reports.3 Efficient data analysis is hindered by a lack of standardization.

In response to this challenge, RadioReport® , the resulting software, is a decision tree that sets minimum requirements and guides the user flexibly through the analysis process.

What is better than getting feedback from the user? 

developing the software WITH them! 

The design process involved mapping the thought processes of experienced radiologists into RadioReport®, ensuring a user-centric approach.

The software's interface was meticulously crafted to guide users seamlessly from image to report in just a few steps.

Guided Reporting operates much like a virtual interview partner, leading the user through an optimized decision pathway to the desired outcome. Throughout the process, users benefit from precise information, graphical selection tools, and required fields. The result is a complete, structured, and standardized report in concise and clear language — generated with just a few clicks. This innovative approach, focusing on anatomy rather than pathology, ensures standardized, high-quality reports with machine-readable content.

Key learnings: Simplicity is key 

for highly complex medical tasks 

Starting with anatomy instead of pathology 

Anatomy-First Approach informed by experienced Radiologist collaboration

What we learned from the close collaboration with radiologists: Effective reporting software should start with anatomy rather than pathology. For this, the 24 modules for CT and MRI cover all clinical examinations in practice. Thats why our start screen lets you choose from exactly the region you have examined.

Graphic localizers to reduce misunderstanding in reports

Visual clarity for improved interpretation

To reduce errors, it's important to use precise terminology to avoid misunderstandings in diagnosis and treatment. For these instances, we created specific localizers, that not only have those terminology aligned, but are also fun to use in medical practice.

These ligaments are both located in the ankle joint. Their names can be similar and are right next to each other. Both are important for ankle stability. Injuries to these ligaments are common in ankle sprains. By giving the radiologist the choice to either choose the text-based description or the graphic localizer, they can also double-check their input and mixing up similar terminology can be reduced, assuring lesser errors.

Plausibility checks and automatic calculations for quality assurance 

Enhancing precision and reliability

To determine, what content is presented in the findings pages, the user has to decide, which examination was used for the patient. Either Mammography and/or Ultrasound has to be selected in this case. 

Example calculator for Body Mass Index (BMI) 

The BMI calculator is a fundamental tool in healthcare that is automatically calculated based on provided height and weight information. This automated process simplifies BMI determination, providing quick and accurate results to assist in patient assessments and healthcare decision-making.

Automatically calculated outputs play a pivotal role in streamlining radiologists' workflow by providing quick and accurate measurements that assist in patient assessment and diagnosis. 

By incorporating automated calculations like BMI into radiology reporting software, radiologists can optimize their workflow, focus more on clinical interpretation, and deliver comprehensive reports efficiently. This automation not only enhances productivity but also contributes to improved patient care and outcomes.

    Ensuring Precision and Efficiency: Robust plausibility checks and automatic calculations are essential for maintaining accuracy, efficiency, and quality assurance in radiology reporting software.

    Upholding Data Integrity: Plausibility checks serve as a safeguard, identifying inconsistencies or errors in reported data early on, based on extensive research and medical input.

    Improving Diagnostic Accuracy: These checks validate coherence and logical validity of findings, assisting radiologists in identifying and addressing discrepancies to minimize misdiagnosis or oversights.

    Empowering Radiologists: Automatic calculations swiftly provide quantitative measurements and assessments, developed with insights from medical professionals and standardized protocols.

    Optimizing Workflow: Leveraging these calculations saves time, facilitating quick and precise analysis and enhancing overall workflow efficiency in radiology practice.

    Multilingualism with just one click

    Enhances efficiency, communication, and patient-centered care, contributing to improved workflow and outcomes.

    Global Collaboration: Radiologists often collaborate with colleagues and medical professionals from different parts of the world. A software that supports multilingual capabilities ensures seamless communication and understanding across diverse linguistic backgrounds.

    Accessibility: Many radiology departments serve culturally diverse patient populations. Having a software that can generate reports in multiple languages with just one click enhances accessibility and improves patient care by providing information in patients' preferred languages.
