Radiological Semiotics in the Report

Abstract

A coarse, macroscopic report can be understood by anyone: this bears out the curiosity and presumed competence with which many clinicians examine the so-called plates against the light or indicate the report with their fingers on the diaphanoscope or the monitor (Fig. 37). It is a custom that has always existed and will always exist, because diagnostic images attract people, especially nowadays when we have panexplorative methods and submicroscopic details; so much so, in fact, that the radiologist has always been labeled more as the producer — the photographer — than as the reporter.
