Manual Entry: Exam Form Section B 'Follow-Up Within 1 Year'

A follow-up record may be added to an exam at any time during the year between screening exams.

Note: For LCSR purposes, a follow-up is not a screening exam; it is any additional imaging, biopsy, or surgery which occurs within 12 months of a screening exam, performed as a result of the findings of a screening exam. See "What follow-up procedures should be reported?" on the LCSR FAQ page for more information.

Follow-up visits should be added to Section B of the exam form. If more than one exam form exists for a patient, enter the follow-up record on the most recent exam form whose exam date is less than or equal to the date of follow-up.

You may add follow-up data to a submitted exam by clicking Exam under Data Collection in the LCSR menu. Click the corresponding Exam # for the patient for whom you want to add follow-up data. The submitted Exam form will display previously saved information. Click theButton - Expandbutton to expand the 'B. Follow-up within 1 year' section.

Click Add Follow-up Record to add a new record and enter all required and/or applicable information for the follow-up record. 

Note: The following fields need to be collected for any follow-up imaging, biopsy, or surgical procedure for a patient who is in the screening program. There can be multiple follow-up records for each patient during the same year. Please complete a follow-up record for each procedure, even if the procedures occur on the same day. If a patient has a percutaneous biopsy and a bronchoscopy, for example, there should be a separate record for each.
