RSNA and Regenstrief Institute launch effort to unify radiology procedure naming
Date:11/26/2013

OAK BROOK, Ill. and INDIANAPOLIS -- Under a contract awarded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, the developers of two advanced medical terminologies have begun work to harmonize and unify terms for radiology procedures. Creating standardized radiology procedure names will improve the quality, consistency and interoperability of radiology test results in electronic medical record systems and health information exchange.

The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), which owns and maintains the RadLex medical terminology for radiology, and the Regenstrief Institute Inc., which owns and maintains the Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes, or LOINC, terminology standard for medical tests and measurements, share the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering award and are collaborating on the endeavor. The goal of the project is to produce a single unified source of names and codes for radiology procedures with a cooperative governance process.

Today, each radiology practice typically creates and maintains its own list of procedure names and descriptions to use in ordering, performing, reporting and billing for services. The absence of shared names makes it difficult to compare radiology data between sites.

For example, one radiology group may call a procedure a thorax CT angiogram, while another may call the same procedure a chest CTA scan. Health information exchange requires a common terminology to ensure that medical data can be recorded, transferred and ultimately used when and where the patient needs it.

Widespread adoption of standard procedure names will promote a common understanding of procedures across care sites, simplify clinical and business processes, improve communications among providers, and enhance the quality and consistency of clinical data produced by radiology. Consistent naming will also facilitate decision support, outcomes analysis and other
