Patient-Oriented Radiology Report Annotation
Seong C. Oh, MD et al In an effort to to promote patient-centered care and improve communication between radiologists and patients, authors have introduced a platform to provide lay language translations of radiology reports.
"PORTER's web-based user interface allows entry of a textual knee MRI report; the system processes the text of the provided report and displays the report with glossary terms highlighted. When the user hovers over or clicks on a highlighted term with the mouse, PORTER displays the term's definition as a pop-up tool-tip balloon. If the term has an associated image and/or web link to additional information, the system displays that supplemental information in a panel adjacent to the annotated report text. "
