OBJECTIVE: This paper describes the connections between the radiology report and clinical work and considers the implications for computerisation. METHOD: A story representation is described that allows consideration of the radiology report as an active unit of narrative rather than a passive collection of data. This paper draws upon the results of a qualitative study of a neuroradiology department. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Radiology reports recount a patient condition but also represent and influence clinical work.
