Ikonopedia Showcases New MQSA Management System and Reporting Modules at Intensive Breast Ultrasound Meeting

Expanded suite of tools designed to streamline processes, improve reporting efficiency and optimize facility operations

Ikonopedia MQMSA Management System Reporting Modules Women's Healthcare

September 18, 2014 — Ikonopedia showcased its new MQSA management system along with four new breast imaging reporting modules at the Intensive Breast Ultrasound Meeting, Sept. 11-14, 2014. The additions to Ikonopedia’s suite of report generation software tools based on indexing breast findings based on what they look like rather than what they are called, are designed to help streamline processes, improve reporting efficiency and optimize facility operations. 

Ikonopedia expanded its suite of report generation software tools to include Screening MRI, Diagnostic MRI, Diagnostic Ultrasound and Biopsy, in addition to Screening and Diagnostic Mammography. For each reporting modality, context-specific images and educational materials are available via a reference library drawn from the teaching files and maintained by Ikonopedia founders and contributors, including László Tabár, M.D. (mammography). The new Diagnostic Ultrasound module is based upon the teaching files of Thomas Stavros, M.D., one of Ikonopedia’s founders and author of “Breast Ultrasound,” one of the most popular reference books in the field of breast ultrasound. The new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) modules were developed from the teaching libraries and knowledge-base of founder Michael Vendrell, M.D., and contributor Steven E. Harmes, M.D.

While Ikonopedia’s proprietary drag-and-drop lesion locator has been customized for each of the new reporting modalities, all have the same consistent layout for efficiency. All reports are guaranteed to be 100 percent BI-RADS language compliant and current with the Atlas 5th Edition. The Ikonopedia reporting interface is fast without sacrificing accuracy and built-in metrics show a median screening report time of 33 seconds — with many under 10 seconds — and many reporting errors common with dictation such as inappropriate BI-RADS, incomplete reports and wrong-side reporting are eliminated automatically.

The new MQSA notification and follow-up system can manage all patient tracking and communication including letters, phone calls, and certified/registered mail based on customized user-defined protocols. Ikonopedia provides flexibility in all required patient notifications and letters can be personalized by BI-RADS category, breast density, exam-type and risk assessment score, and can be batch printed with facility logos and government-mandated language. With the letter filter system, patients with dense breasts or high-risk score can receive a context-specific letter that is appropriate for them. 

Designed to optimize workflow for the radiologist and breast imagers, Ikonopedia’s suite of breast imaging report generation software tools are based on indexing breast findings based on what they look like rather than what they are called. As the radiologist selects images on the Ikonopedia screen that most closely match the patient's images, a structured language report is generated from a standardized lexicon.
