RSNA: Radiology reporting

The RSNA informatics group is standardizing radiology reporting by making a report template library. this uses expert consensus, standard formats, rich functionality and all in XML. Their aim is to provide these templates on a webpage where a radiologist can visit an 'online shop' with macros, select the templates of interest and put them in a shopping cart. Subsequently, the templates can be downloaded and used in the local speach recognition system.

Using this a more consistent reporting can be achieved and reporting speed increases with effective macros.

The full database now contains over 140 templates that are freely available in text and XML.
