Poring over the medical record of brain tumor patients for pertinent history can be an overwhelming task for the neuroradiologist. The evaluation of an imaging study in a brain tumor patient involves examining the prior imaging and clinical documents for recent intervention potentially affecting the appearance of the brain and then drawing a conclusion and rendering a report based on the contextual information obtained. In complex cases, the radiologist can spend much of his/her time trying to locate the appropriate documents. The purpose of this research is to develop effective methods to review all of the pertinent information in a patient medical record incorporating HIS (Hospital Information Systems), RIS (Radiology Information Systems) and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications Systems) information. Our research involves three areas in improving the clinical workflow for neuroradiologists: filtering the document worklist for pertinent clinical data, identification of key clusters of clinical information, and an automatic hanging protocol that displays the MR images for optimal image comparison.
