Leading to missed diagnosis… When a significant finding is detected on a radiology exam, one study showed that 36% of radiology reports record it in the “findings”, but not the “impression” (the “go-to” section for ordering physicians). This happens particularly when there are other, more significant, findings. With recent advances in NLP and AI, using an automated system to detect and track follow-up on potential incidental findings serves as an efficient, low cost solution. After all, early detection is key to survival, right? So why wouldn’t we want this, not just for our patients, but for ourselves and our loved ones?
