This tip, contains discussion of and common samples of “how to’s” to avoid free text input, new and expanded categories to facilitate additional communication for “non” localized items not requiring radiology “action” or profiling specific detail (re: simple cysts).

For ultrasound findings, four separate categories were added (cyst, mass, nodes, other).

A separate category for calcifications was added to allow additional profiling discussion, compared to the “generic” profiling discussion in localized abnormality category.

A separate repeat category was added to indicate the view and why repeat imaging necessary (re: motion).

Resolved category offers the option of specifying the additional view(s) obtained for findings that are no longer present or have no correlation (re: palpable).
