Echocardiogram report is an important tool to describe and communicate findings noted in an Echocardiography exam. The completeness of a report is a key indicator to measure the quality of an Echocardiography lab. We investigated the frequency and quality of the conclusion statement in the Echocardiogram follow-up reports. The frequency of the conclusion statement is 63.0% while the occurrence of comparisons with prior exams is 24.9%.
Learning Objective 1: Understand the echocardiogram workflow and the importance of the report completeness to communicate findings noted in an echocardiography exam.
