SCRIBE is an automated radiology reporting system that uses the HyperCard environment on Macintosh computers. Radiologic findings and anatomic terms are presented in graphic form, and the appropriate terms are selected by using a trackball or touch-sensitive video screen. Additional lists of more specific terms and differential diagnoses can be requested by the user for abnormal findings. The system is suited to the reporting of plain films and is being used in the emergency room of a large academic radiology department. Advantages of the system include low cost, operational familiarity to Macintosh users, and elimination of transcription costs. Finished reports are immediately available in both printed and electronic forms.
