Few more tips in writing the report
I will continue from where I left in the previous post. These are few of the tips, which is known to one and all. I will highlight their importance with few examples.
- Start with the main abnormality and add supporting radiological abnormalities centered around it.
Example: Instead of writing,
"Significant hydronephrosis is seen in the left kidney. The right kidney is normal. The left ureter is also dilated...."
and somewhere in next paragraph,
"There is a large soft tissue mass in the retroperitoneum encasing the aorta and left ureter",
it is better to say,
"A large retroperitoneal soft tissue attenuation mass is shown encasing the aorta and left ureter, leading to moderate left hydronephrosis."
