Standardized reporting

Facilitating clinical and research data collection; driving practice quality improvement

Standardized reporting improves the practice of interventional radiology

Reporting templates for procedural and peri-procedural documentation


The Society of Interventional Radiology Standardized Reporting Initiative is  helping members with the integration of standardized and structured reporting into IR practice.

SIR advocates the adoption of practice paradigms that, above all, improve patient outcomes. Standardized reporting provides many benefits: In today’s healthcare environment, reducing ambiguity and adherence to guidelines are extremely important. Guidelines are viewed by many in the health care arena as an effective way to reduce costs, improve quality and deliver better patient care.
