Artificial Intelligence Enabling Radiology Reporting

Radiol Clin North Am. 2021 Nov;59(6):1045-1052. doi: 10.1016/j.rcl.2021.07.004.


The radiology reporting process is beginning to incorporate structured, semantically labeled data. Tools based on artificial intelligence technologies using a structured reporting context can assist with internal report consistency and longitudinal tracking. To-do lists of relevant issues could be assembled by artificial intelligence tools, incorporating components of the patient's history. Radiologists will review and select artificial intelligence-generated and other data to be transmitted to the electronic health record and generate feedback for ongoing improvement of artificial intelligence tools. These technologies should make reports more valuable by making reports more accessible and better able to integrate into care pathways.
