At DMR Collation we can prepare a Schedule of Radiology as part of our Chronology service.
The requirement for a Schedule of Radiology is entirely case specific. In some cases a Schedule will be useful, informative and can help to identify missing images or reports. However, in other matters, it will not be required.
Our Schedule of Radiology is a reference table documenting all disclosed radiology images and reports in chronological sequence.
The schedule has three columns as follows:
Our schedule preparation service cross references information from two different standpoints.
Firstly the disclosed CD rom of radiology is opened and viewed and the contents of the disc recorded on the schedule of radiology.
Secondly, when the nurse analyst is preparing the chronology, they will simultaneously review the records to check for any inconsistencies with the disclosed images. Any performed radiology noted in the medical records, but not disclosed by the Trust on the CD Rom of Radiology, will be recorded on the schedule. At the same time the page references for corresponding radiology reports will be recorded on the schedule along with any missing radiology reports identified.
Our end product is a schedule which specifies the chronological order in which radiology scanning has taken place and clearly identifies whether any radiology images or reports are missing from the current set of records.
The schedule also lists the page reference for any radiology reports associated with the radiology image and, if you are using our digital booklet service, has hyperlinks direct from the schedule to each individual listed radiology report.
