(1) In order to view and modify a patient recall schedule, a Recall Events button was added to view, remove, and combine future recalls. If the amendment requires a future recall, select the interval and exam type from the selectors. When the amendment is approved the recall date and exam type is added to the patient recall queue. Also expanded are the formatting options to display amendments above the original report versus below, and if multiple amendments in ascending or descending date order. Also added is an option not to display in the report the letter that was selected, per a client request.

(3) WorkFlow Tip – The option exists to have amendment prepared by other than the requesting Radiologist, and then suspend for the Radiologist to approve later. Suspended, amended exams appear on worklist with “Amnd/Held” status. Applying the filter “amend” will filter these from other exams on the worklist, and/or if the Radiologist is specified during amend preparation, then Radiologist can use “my assigned exams” filter as well.
