  7. 7. The American College of Radiology (ACR) recommendations for a Good Radiology Dictation Practice:  Efficient communication without any interferences:  No dictations while you are on the move.  No eating or drinking while you dictate.  No instrumental sounds (radiology devices, a/c blow, vacuum cleaner, recording device positioning, etc.).  Speak slowly and audibly.
  8. 8. Dictate with words that are on a standard radiology glossary and radiology lexicon.  Avoid non-standard radiology acronyms and abbreviations.  Comprehensive patient demographics (Name, DOB, age, gender, location, referring physician, date/time of examination)  Examination parts, procedure & limitations, observation, interpretation/impression. 
  9. 9. Data of further diagnosis (if any).  Relevant clinical information (eg: ICD-9 codes).  Any noteworthy patient reactions.  Standard and easy-to-understand report template. 
