Abstract

This article describes the development of a structured MRI reporting template and diagrammatic worksheet for perianal sepsis through collaboration between radiologists and colorectal surgeons at our institution, and the rationale behind each component of the worksheet. Benefits of this reporting worksheet include optimizing communication of key imaging findings that have a real impact on patient management, less time spent on reporting the study, and easier comparison between studies. We illustrate the utility of the report template with case studies. We summarize the current surgical approaches to perianal sepsis to help radiologists focus on reporting the findings relevant to surgical planning.
