Synoptic Radiology Reporting

Vision: Provincial-wide synoptic reporting for key cancer imaging reports


  • To improve the quality and clarity of radiology reporting for cancer
  • To drive standards in radiology reporting
  • To facilitate automated data mining in radiology reports for staging data collection and population health research

The Cancer Imaging Program has developed two white papers regarding synoptic reporting.

The Cancer Imaging Program also has an MRI Rectal Staging Template.

The template is to be used by oncology specialists to assist with neoadjuvant chemo radiation decisions, and preoperative planning for patients with adenocarcinoma of the rectum (who are being considered for total mesorectal excision with or without abdominal perineal resection).

It is also a useful communication tool to inform treatment and prognostic discussions at multidisciplinary cancer conferences. Accompanying support material provides the description of terms, evidence basis, and limitations.
