Session ID: 

Enhancing Care with Artificial Intelligence Driven Interactive Multimedia Reports

10:30am - 11:30am Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


The radiology report is the principle work product of the radiologist. Until recently, reports describing findings in imaging studies have been plain, text-only documents. Such reports are increasingly inadequate. Technological progress now permits the report to be a container for collaboration tools and interactive multimedia data elements such as images, structured data (like tables and charts), and hyperlinks from report text to live images in the PACS. Artificial Intelligence is used to assist study interpretation and to automate data input into reports. We describe the implementation of advanced reports in radiology departments at two major medical centers and provide data quantifying their acceptance by radiologists and clinicians. We discuss how they add value to the provision of radiology services and promote better patient care. Our conclusions are applicable to many other medical disciplines, so this approach fits well in a multidisciplinary enterprise imaging strategy.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss the limitations of traditional radiology reports
  • Demonstrate the advantages technology provides in the form of interactive multimedia reports
  • Describe the implementation of interactive multimedia reports at two major medical institutions
  • Illustrate the adoption and benefits of interactive multimedia reports with objective data on their actual use
