On average, a radiologist reads
100 exams a day.

“We generate more than 2,000 reports a day
and with those, tens of thousands of images,
maybe upwards of hundreds of thousands of
images a day.”
- Keith Dreyer, DO, PhD
Vice Chairman of Radiology,
Massachusetts General Hospital

How radiologists manage
incidental findings is highly
variable.
The American College of
Radiology (ACR) has
developed white papers on
incidental findings in 11 organ
systems to help decrease that
variability.
Volume and variability in incidental findings.

The reality: It takes too long to find the
right consensus recommendation from
the right article every time it’s needed.
© 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. 6
It is impossible to know everything.
The numerous complex
clinical decision trees are
impossible to memorize, yet
apply in many situations.
Sometimes, the radiologist
simply can’t keep up with
turnaround time pressures
and still consistently use
published guidelines from the
best sources.

The costs of variability in managing incidental
findings not getting it right.
• Patients exposed to excess radiation
• Medical-legal liability issues
• 20% financial waste on unnecessary medical imaging
© 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. 8
The solution: Healthcare organizations, including
Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), are
integrating clinical guidelines into their reporting
system at the point of interpretation.
Now radiologists have instant and hassle-free
access to the right information, at the right time.

Industry best practices embedded
into reports:
 Reduces reporting time
 Helps radiologists
recommend the right exam
 Improves referrer
satisfaction
 Increases medical-legal
protection
Better information leads to better decisions.
