Answer: Radioisotope Scan Report Example 1

12/2/91: Brain Scan

Imp: Abnormal brain scan compatible with subdural disease or right

Comments:

  1. Record date.
  2. Record procedure performed — Brain scan.
  3. Record impression along with any information which seems to clarify or add to the report.
  4. A scan report will seldom contain a positive statement regarding the presence of cancer. Scan findings should be supported by other more definitive procedures. Thus, when you encounter an abnormal scan or isotope tracer report, look for other reports which support or negate the findings.
