Reporting: Presentation & Interpretation
– Reviewing, Interpretation and Reporting relies on readily available image data, accurate display of images, ease of processing of image sets and creation of diagnostic evidence
– The DICOM Standard defined a number of Information Objects (Images, Presentation States and Evidence Data) in the form of Structured Reports (SR), and a number of Services providing the means for creating interoperable data, ensuring consistent display quality and proper documentation of findings during image interpretation
