Aims and objectives
The written radiology report is still the primary radiologic output and is necessary for documentation of the official interpretation.
the narrative style of radiologic reporting has been the standard and largely taught to residents through one- on- one- teaching with faculty. However,

Methods and materials
A literature search was carried out in Pubmed8 the 16th April 2018 with the terms “anatomy”,
Studies between 1995 and 2018 in English language were identified.
Articles not referring to humans were excluded.
The studies were hand- selected; the literature of the selected articles was further searched for relevant publications.
We gathered evidenced- based anatomic findings and grading schemes that would guide therapeutic decision making for clinicians who order CTA of...
22 experts completed the questionnaire: 17 neurologists,
2 radiologists and 2 vascular surgeons.

10.5% of the experts read their patient’s radiologic reports on a regular basis.
86% declared their existing reports to be complete and 86% stated that...
