The main characteristics of industrialized societies are: as concerns demographics, a drop in birth rates, ageing of the native population, and immigration from poor countries; as concerns health, development and implementation of screening programs and — more generally speaking — preclinical diagnoses. These peculiar demographic and health aspects deeply affect reporting, as they outline (a) the prevailing type of population, and (b) emerging health needs. It is well known — as regards clinical radiology — that the report must interpret both as well as possible. Here, we take a closer look at them and explain how they affect reporting.
