Nomenclature and Reporting
Reports in uroradiology should be well structured with a systematic description of normal findings and potential pathology. Reports have to be understandable by all physicians who may have to manage children with urologic or nephrologic disorders. To achieve this goal, terms have to be standardized and accepted by the medical community in general. The European Society of Pediatric Radiology uroradiology task force has issued on harmonizing and standardizing uroradiologic terminology in cooperation with European urologists and nephrologists (Vivier PH at al. 2017).
