Objectives: Radiological reporting is a relatively new and challenging issue in dentomaxillofacial radiology, whereas it has been performed so many years in medical radiology. The purpose of this study is to compare approaches of dentomaxillofacial and medical radiologists regarding radiology reporting. 

Materials and Methods: Dentomaxillofacial and medical radiologists were invited by e-mail. The participants filled a survey regarding the features of their own radiology reports. The study was based on two independent groups (dentomaxillofacial and medical radiologists). Mann-Whitney U test was used for two independent groups.

Results: 285 radiologists in total (115 dentomaxillofacial and 170 medical radiologists) participated in this survey. Structured radiologic reports were mostly preferred by both dentomaxillofacial (53.9%) and medical radiologists (77%), but statistically significant difference was found between two groups (p<0.05). Although dentomaxillofacial (79.1%) and medical (81.2%) radiologists mostly reported that their own reports consisted of separate headings as clinical information, findings and conclusion, there was a statistically significant difference between two groups (p<0.05). The majority of dentomaxillofacial (99.1%) and medical (99.4%) radiologists agreed regarding radiology training programs should include radiology report construction.

Conclusion: This is the first study pointing out the approaches of dentomaxillofacial radiologists about reporting. Good radiological reporting is a relatively new task for dentomaxillofacial radiologists compared to medical radiologists. This study showed that the approaches of dentomaxillofacial and medical radiologists were similar regarding radiological reports.

Amaç:  Radyolojik raporlama dentomaksillofasiyal radyoloji için görece yeni ve ilgi çekici bir konudur, oysa medikal radyolojide uzun yıllardan beri yapılmaktadır. Bu çalışmanın amacı, dentomaksillofasiyal ve medikal radyologların radyolojik raporlama ile ilgili uygulamalarını karşılaştırmaktır.

Materyal ve Metot: Dentomaksillofasiyal ve medikal radyologlar çalışmaya e-posta ile davet edildi. Katılımcılar kendi radyoloji raporlarıyla özellikleriyle ilgili sorulardan oluşan bir anketi doldurdular.  Çalışma, dentomaksillofasiyal ve medikal radyologlar olmak üzere iki bağımsız gruptan oluşmaktaydı. Bu iki bağımsız grup için Mann-Whitney U testi yapıldı.

Bulgular: Toplam 285 radyolog (115 dentomaksillofasiyal ve 170 medikal radyolog) çalışmaya katıldı. Hem dentomaksillofasiyal (%53.9) hem de medikal radyologlar (%77) tarafından çoğunlukla yapılandırılmış radyolojik raporlar tercih edilmekteydi, fakat iki grup arasında istatistiksel olarak anlamlı fark bulunamadı (p<0.05). Dentomaksillofasiyal (%79.1) ve medikal radyologlar (%81.2) çoğunlukla kendi raporlarının klinik bilgi, bulgular ve sonuç olmak üzere ayrı başlıklardan oluştuğunu belirtmekle birlikte, iki grup arasında istatistiksel olarak anlamlı fark vardı (p<0.05). Dentomaksillofasiyal (%99.1) ve medikal radyologların (%99.4) büyük çoğunluğu radyoloji eğitim programlarının radyoloji raporu yorumlamasını da kapsaması gerektiği konusunda hemfikirdi.

Sonuç: Bu çalışma dentomaksillofasiyal radyologların raporlama uygulamalarıyla ilgili ilk çalışmadır. İyi radyolojik raporlama yapmak dentomaksillofasiyal radyologlar için görece olarak yeni bir görevdir. Bu çalışma dentomaksillofasiyal ve medikal radyologların radyolojik raporlama ile ilgili uygulamalarının benzer olduğunu gösterdi
