Method of Detection

The American College of Radiology’s “Method of Detection” guidelines are designed to provide radiologists with a structured approach to categorize and document the first test or clinical event to trigger the work-up leading to the histologic diagnosis of breast cancer. These guidelines help standardize reporting and will help us answer important questions about the balance of risks and benefits of screening mammography.

Saving Radiologists’ Time

Ikonopedia is engineered to streamline the radiologist’s workflow. The system quickly searches through exam history, swiftly identifying the first imaging test, questionnaire answers, or patient signs and symptoms that triggered the subsequent workup and recommendation for biopsy. This capability eliminates the need for extensive manual searching, reducing the time and effort required for each exam.

Smart “Method of Detection” Selection

After searching exam history, Ikonopedia provides a concise list of the most likely “Method of Detection” triggers based on the available data. The radiologist can accept the system suggestion or override it, giving them the final say in choosing the most appropriate “Method of Detection.”

Time-saving Efficiency: Expedite your workflow by automatically identifying relevant historical information, making the radiologist’s job easier.

Enhanced Diagnostic Precision: The software provides intelligent recommendations while ensuring radiologists retain control over the final decision.

ACR Compliance: Ikonopedia’s implementation aligns seamlessly with ACR’s “Method of Detection” guidelines, simplifying the reporting process.
