What is Pre-read or Preliminary Radiology report ?

The Preliminary (pre-reads) radiology reports are provisional reports drafted usually by Junior Radiologist which includes all the relevant findings and impression. This preliminary report is then finalised by (usually in-house) Senior Radiologist.

This is used in multiple situations like

  • when Junior Radiologist does not have valid Medical registration to report cases
  • when particular degree or license is required for the reporting, like USA.
