The LCSR Measures – Exam-Level report is an interactive tool for viewing a facility’s exam data that contribute to a selected measure. The report is divided into three tabs across the top of the screen.


The Start Page Dashboard tab introduces the report and provides instructions about how to download report data into an Excel file


The Rankings and Exam tab allows you to select a measure to view all of the exams that contribute to the measure’s rate calculation. You can filter reports by Year, Facility (within a Corporate Account), and Measure Category.


The report displays a facility’s rankings for each measure compared to the entire LCSR. Color-coded rankings provide visual feedback with values determined by a facility’s performance compared to national performance quartiles – e.g. in the Top 25% of all sites, Bottom 25% of all sites, etc.

Select a measure name in the table and use the scroll bar to the right of the exam list to view all of the exams for that measure. The fields displayed and the order of the data presented vary depending upon the measure category.

  • The Screened Population measures’ fields include the NPI number of the ordering physician, age, smoking status, etc. The table is sorted by the NPI (smallest to largest number)

  • The During the Exam measures’ fields include age, body mass index, CTDIvol, etc. The table is sorted by the date of the exam (earliest to latest)

  • The Findings/Results measures’ fields include reading radiologist, age, Lung RADS assessment, etc. The table is sorted by the date of the exam (earliest to latest)
