Following are general notes on the analysis of radiology images.
Generally, compare mainly with the most recent previous image. It is warranted to look at even additional previous images when previous images are pathologic as well, and the chronology of the disease process may be important, or a comparison needs to be made with an even older image that shows the normal anatomy of the patient.
- Follow the report of any previous exam, in order to check any change in the items regarded as significant.
- Any additional areas of interest from the current referral.
- Basic general screening of the visualized organs
