A logical and comprehensive classification code has been built into a computerized system to permit the direct generation of radiologic reports. The report appears instantly on the television screen and, upon approval, is typed out both in the patient's area and radiology department, bypassing the traditional transcription and delivery process.

Computer operating costs will be competitive with conventional manual reporting. The CLIP (Coded Language Information Processing) system is presently undergoing clinical trial.
