This information can help the radiologist identify potential underlying causes of symptoms and make an accurate diagnosis. πŸ”πŸ’‰πŸ©Ί

βœ… Avoids misinterpretation of imaging results: The patient’s medical history can help the radiologist interpret the imaging results accurately. For example, if a patient has a history of lung cancer, a spot on their lung scan might be more likely to indicate metastasis rather than pneumonia. πŸ§πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈπŸ“ˆ

βœ… Identifies potential complications: If a patient has a medical condition that could complicate the imaging procedure, such as claustrophobia or an allergy to contrast agents, the radiologist needs to be aware of this information beforehand to take appropriate measures. βš οΈπŸ©ΊπŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ
