The Exam Search tool is a useful way to query exams using a variety of criteria.


You can access the report by selecting CT Standardized Dose Index Reports from the Interactive Reports menu.


Select at least one Corporate Account and click Apply to retrieve data. By default, the remaining report filters are set to retrieve exams for all facilities with study dates occurring within the past seven days for all RPIDs and scanners.


Use the following report filters to refine the data returned in the report:

  • Facility lists all facilities associated with the selected corporate account(s)

  • There are two separate filters for study dates

    • Include Data From specifies the time period to include, relative to today. The default is the past seven days

    • Exam Date displays the range of exam dates actually available and can be used to narrow the time frame to a range within the Include Data From time period

  • Age Group

  • Query by determines whether the RPID / Study description filter displays standardized RPID exam names or the facility’s Study Descriptions

  • Body Part restricts the RPID / Study filter to exams for the specified body part(s)

  • RPID / Study Description lists the available studies by either RPID or Study Description, as determined by the Query by parameter setting

  • Scanner


The sample report, below, shows the exams for all scanners and RPIDs since August 22, 2016. The results appear in the table to the right of the search filters, with CTDIvol, SSDE, and DLP data for each exam. Note that the Include Data From filter is set to show data from the last three years, but the Exam Date range is August 22, 2016, to November 14, 2017, because that is the range of data actually available.DIR Interactive Exam Search - Sample Data
