The Fluoro/DR Summary of Data Submitted report provides summary statistics for both the Fluoroscopy (Fluoro) and Digital Radiography (DR) modules in the DIR. An exam search function is also available and can help you verify data in the DIR match what your facility has transmitted. Users can also identify procedures that are not mapped and will subsequently not appear in DIR reports. All users except Corporate Account Administrators and Service Users may view this report.
How to Access
To access the report, log in to the NRDR Portal and click the Fluoro/DR Summary of Data Submitted link under the Interactive Reports submenu.
Navigating the Report
The report is comprised of 4 tabs with the left-most tab being the About this Report tab which provides insight into the reports’ measures and overall filter use. Upon selecting a tab displaying report data, hover over the information icon (blue circle in the upper left corner) to obtain details about maximizing the analysis capabilities of the information presented in that tab.
The Report Features
The report is comprised of three report tabs described below.
Summary of Data Submitted
This report includes interactive filters for Corporate Account, Facility, Exam Date Range, Station Name, Description type, and Select Registry. These filters are shared in common across all report tabs.
To populate the report, select a Corporate Account and one or more Facilities within the Corporate Account.
By default, the From and To date filters display data for the current month but you may set it to any timeframe. The Grand Total exam count in the upper left corner of the report is shown in orange for facilities that have not submitted data within the last ten days so that disruptions in data transmission can be quickly addressed.
The Station Name filter allows you to select specific stations of interest, the Description Type filter enables the toggle between Requested Procedure and Study Description views, and you can select either Fluoro or DR data using the Registry filter.
You can filter the Number of Exams by Study Date bar chart by clicking an ACR Common ID, Requested Procedure Name (or Study Description) in the bar chart. By default, the chart displays the number of exams by day. Hovering along the top of the y-axis reveals collapse icons [-] next to the month, quarter, and year. Click on an icon to change the level of detail to the corresponding level. In the example below, the mouse has highlighted the collapse icon at the month level.
The level of detail at the bottom of the chart changes to month. An expand icon is now available next to month, to drill down to show data by day, and collapse icons at the top will raise the level of detail to show volume by quarter or year.
The Exam Search report summarizes the number of studies, station names, and facilities matching the filter criteria, with details for each study listed in the table. The filters work the same as described in the above section with the addition of the Description filter that enables users to select specific procedures or exams of interest.
To export data, click anywhere on the table, click the Download icon in the bottom right corner, and select Crosstab to create a .CSV file of the entire table.
The Unmapped Procedures report provides a quick view of the procedures not mapped for one or more facilities in a Corporate Account listed in descending order. The example below shows that 58% of the fluoroscopy procedures are not mapped to an ACR Common term and, therefore, will not appear in DIR other Fluoro reports.
