Abstract: Ultrasound reports are developed in different ways by clinicians and radiologists. These variations in reporting style, content and format could impact on the value of the report and the way it is interpreted, which in turn have implications on patient management and decision making. There are many reasons for the poor success rate of some reporting systems which is usually down to poor adaptability and the main one being the human factor. In this paper, we present a system architecture model for a proposed medical ultrasound reporting system that attempt to address some of these problems. In this system, we propose a solution where humans will not need to adapt to the system, instead the system acknowledge the various styles, contents and format being produced by the humans and uses an ontology to standardise the terminology and Natural Language Processing techniques to transform free text reports to the preferred proposed model of a structured and standardised report.
