Paper Abstract

Two hundred examinations were tracked through the neuroradiology reading room. The median time from completing the exam to starting the interpretation was 1.6 hours for 76% and 18 hours for 24% of the cases. The delay occurred because exams done after 4:00 PM were held for the next day along with exams for which relevant prior studies were unavailable. The median times required for previewing, interpreting and consulting on a case were 7, 8 and 5 minutes respectively.
