  • Study: Many PET reports are lacking key elements
    Researchers who assessed PET reports based on a list of desirable elements from the American College of Radiology and SNM guidelines found that some of the important elements were missing in more than 40% of the PET reports, and that only nine of the 34 elements could be seen in more than 90% of the reports. The clinical indication for the study was addressed in only 56% of the reports, and "if the reason for doing the study is not clearly addressed in the impression portion of the report, the report is unlikely to have any impact on patient management," wrote Dr. Michael M. Graham, a professor in the radiology department at the University of Iowa. HealthImaging.com (2/1) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

稍早的一篇外電報導,指出在美國多達40%以上的正子掃描報告的內容並沒有完整的呈現guideline中所建議的34個要件,而九成的報告僅涵蓋其中九個要件。學者指出,這樣的報告內容對於病患後續治療有所影響,而其中最令人關注的一件事情,是約有五成的報告沒有明確指出施行正子掃描的適應症,或是原因,而報告中缺乏這個要件,有可能使的這份報告對臨床診治的流程影響大打折扣!

以下,我就美國核醫學會建議的報告內容略述如下: | Procedure Guideline for Tumor Imaging with 18F-FDG PET/CT 1.0* 這份指引的內容值得大家多學習!
