A critical element in improving the value of PET for everyone - from reading physicians to referring physicians to patients - is the report produced by radiologists. The report needs to contain, hold and communicate more value. Its language and contents must continually improve so that reading physicians perceive PET as more conclusive and less subjective.
Improving the communication among physicians on care teams comes down to improving the language of the PET report. We believe that Q.Clear and the Q.SUV measurement it produces will play a major role in improving these reports as quantitation is the communication language between reading physicians and referring physicians.
So, improving quantitation improves communication.
