Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate patient preferences, understanding, and satisfaction regarding visual review of radiographic images during counseling. Patients and Methods: 101 urologic patients who presented for counseling where images impacted decision making were randomized into group A, shown their images, and group B, shown a diagram. Both completed a satisfaction survey blinded to the study's purpose. A second unblinded survey evaluated patient comprehension of and preferences regarding images. Comparison of intervention and control groups for differences in satisfaction and analysis of patient self-reported preferences and understanding regarding radiographic images was performed. Results: Group A had higher satisfaction scores but did not reach statistical significance. Both groups reported comprehension of images (100%, 97.9%), improvement in understanding of their condition and treatment because of viewing images (98%, 95.8%), and felt images should be shown to all patients (92%, 89.6%). Multivariate analysis identified female sex to independently predict greater understanding of images and belief that all patients should be shown their images. Conclusions: Almost all patients reported comprehension of images, improvement in understanding because of review of images, and preference for being shown images. Female patients expressed greater understanding and preference for all patients to be shown their images. Review of radiographic images represents a potentially useful additional modality for patient counseling whose usefulness for improving satisfaction will need to be confirmed in further studies.
