Top 5 Mistakes in Writing Radiology Report Conclusions

Deciding what to include in the conclusion of a report is one of the most difficult but important challenges faced by a radiologist. It will come as no surprise to you that clinicians love a conclusion, so much so that it is often the first and only thing they read. And so here's my list of the...

Not having a conclusion

If your report is longer than three or four sentences then it really should have a conclusion. In my experience, radiologists most often omit a conclusion when they are unsure how to interpret the findings. Unfortunately this is precisely when a conclusion is most valuable, as it's likely the clinician will find the case difficult…
