After the software analyses the images and segments the tissues, it generates a rough report. The radiologist has the ability to edit the reading in 2 ways in case of discrepancy between his opinion and the values calculated by CoLumbo – by level by adding and removing pathologies from the pathology sheet (15) and editing various measurements and modifiers from the panel with level reading (16), or by editing the full reading.
In the pathology panel, also called pathology list (15), are included all pathologies supported by the software, whether or not the software automatically detected them (e.g. small herniation, small lordotic angle, etc.), as well as some additional measurements. All detected pathologies must be validated by the radiologist. The responsibility for preparing the final reading is entirely his/hers.
From this panel the user can remove any findings from the RED CLOSE button or add any findings not detected from the GREEN PLUS button for each level to the final report. If the user believes that a pathology is present at any of the levels, but CoLumbo did not consider it present, it is enough to be at the appropriate level axially and click the GREEN PLUS button next to the name of the pathology. We advise the user to click on the pathology label in the panel before adding a pathology, so that he/she can make sure that neither the software has really found it, nor it is simply insignificant and its size does not reach the minimum settings. Once it is added as present at the appropriate level, various modifiers and measurements are added to it, which the user can correct (or fill in if they are empty).
If the user believes that a pathology is not present at any of the levels, but CoLumbo believes that the pathology is present, it is enough for him/her to be at the appropriate level axially and click the RED CLOSE button to the name of the pathology. We advise the user to hover the mouse over the pathology label in the panel before removing it, so that he/she can make sure that the software has indeed detected it incorrectly and that the user has not missed it in a hurry.
The user can see the segmentation and measurements associated with each maintained pathology by hovering the mouse over the label with its name:
