Frequently asked questions

Are you saving patient data? If yes, where?

The online version of Smart Radiology does not ask for patient-specific details. Therefore, all structured reports filled in online are anonymized.

I am convinced of the advantages of structured reporting. But does Smart Radiology also speed up the reporting process?

There will always be a lag time between the introduction of a new workflow feature and the actual implementation. No matter whether you currently work with free-text dictations, speech recognition or type your reports: we are convinced that you are going to be faster with Smart Radiology. Similar studies in pathology have shown that reports were generated significantly faster after the initial training phase had passed. Furthermore, you will record fewer follow-up inquiries. This has been tried and tested together with experienced radiologists.

I am a user of speech recognition software. Can I combine Smart Radiology and speech recognition?

Yes, you may opt for a combination of Smart Radiology and your speech recognition software. If desired you may also use speech control within Smart Radiology. Free-text dictations are supported as well.

Everyone speaks about the possibilities of AI in radiology? Do I have to be concerned? Will the machines take over?

AI or machine learning is there to support you in your work. It won’t replace the doctor.

Can I use Smart Radiology as a standard for my institute / practice?

Yes, Smart Radiology is the perfect tool to set standards. Our Medical Content Teams is more than happy to support you at any time. We can develop templates from scratch OR prepare reporting templates according to your specifications.

I already have my own ready-to-use templates. Is it too late to implement Smart Radiology?

With our editor app you may build your own templates OR edit existing templates to suit your needs. Our app enables you to implement your own ready-to-use report texts.

Can I integrate Smart Radiology into my RIS/PACS?
