Indicate the image quality:Image Quality Category29761931.0CHARACTER
Adequate QualitySufficient QualityMeeting a quantitative measure necessary for a requirement; enough to meet the needs of a situation. New NCI Definition: Meeting a quantitative or qualitative measure necessary for a requirement; enough to meet the needs of a situation.: Quality; a degree or grade of excellence or worth; an essential and distinguishing attribute of something or someone.
Exemplary QualityExemplary QualityIndicates a biomedical image that is of best quality, most adequate for diagnostic purposes or for publication.
Limited QualityLimited QualityIndicates a biomedical image that is of acceptable quality, with some technical defect but still adequate for diagnostic purposes.
Not Adequate QualityNegation Sufficient QualityAn operation in which a term denies or inverts the meaning of another term or construction.: Meeting a quantitative measure necessary for a requirement; enough to meet the needs of a situation. New NCI Definition: Meeting a quantitative or qualitative measure necessary for a requirement; enough to meet the needs of a situation.: Quality; a degree or grade of excellence or worth; an essential and distinguishing attribute of something or someone.
Which of the following affected the Quality of the image? (check all apply)Suboptimal Image Quality Reason29766932.0CHARACTER
image acquisition or processing errorimage acquisition or processing errorImaging deficiency resulting from insufficient or inaccurate data collection and/or reconstruction.
image noise artifactImage Noise ArtifactAny record of an imaging event whether physical or electronic.: An artifact that appears as a point to point signal fluctuation in a uniform material.
incomplete or incorrect imaging protocolincomplete or incorrect imaging protocolImaging exam not acquired, in part or in whole, per specified image acquisition parameters.
motion-related artifactMotion Related ArtifactAn artifact resulting from movement of the object being imaged during the imaging sequence.
OtherOtherDifferent than the one(s) previously specified or mentioned.
patient artifactPatient Motion ArtifactAn artifact resulting from movement of the patient during image capture.

Conditional Image Quality QuestionsThere are business rules to indicate situations under which these elements should be used on a case report form
Medical reason imaging was not completedImage Exam Not Completed Medical Reason31348421.0CHARACTER
Abnormal laboratory levelAbnormal Laboratory Test ResultDeviating from the norm.: The outcome of a laboratory test.
Adverse EventAdverse EventAny unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, syndrome, or disease, temporally associated with the use of a medical product or procedure, regardless of whether or not it is considered related to the product or procedure (attribution of unrelated, unlikely, possible, probable, or definite). The concept refers to events that could be medical product related, dose related, route related, patient related, caused by an interaction with another therapy or procedure, or caused by opioid initiation or dose escalation. The term also is referred to as an adverse experience. The old term Side Effect is retired and should not be used.
ClaustrophobiaClaustrophobiaAn irrational fear of being in a confined space.
Injection complicationInjection ComplicationUse of a syringe and needle to push fluids or drugs into the body; often called a "shot.": Complication; any disease or disorder that occurs during the course of (or because of) another disease.
Progressive diseasePDCancer that is increasing in scope or severity.
Optional Image Quality QuestionsThere is no requirement for inclusion of these elements on the case report form. If the design and scientific questions posed in the study dictate the need to collect this type of data, these elements should be included.
