To analyze revised imaging reports in diagnostic radiology from a medical center in Taiwan, we prospectively collected revised imaging reports from one institution between September 2004 and June 2006. A total of 297 revised reports was recruited and divided into five types: missed diagnosis, transcription errors, requested by clinicians, obtained additional information, and suboptimal films. Results showed that the rate of revised reports was 0.06%. Of these 297, plain x-rays had 138 reports, CT/MRI had 119, and other special procedure examinations had 40. The most frequent reason for revision of plain x-rays was missed diagnosis (38.4%), whereas obtained additional information was the main reason for revision of CT/MRI reports (41.2%). Transcription errors accounted for most of the revision in other special procedure examinations (37.5%). In this study, the rate of revised reports was correlated well with previous literature (0.07%). Radiologists can learn from such feedback and revision to enhance quality of our imaging reports.
