Computer-aided formulation of physician's reports and storage of ERCP data.


In the 2nd Medical Dept. of the Technical University of Munich, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) reports are written with the aid of a computer. The doctor doing the examination enters the ERCP data into screen masks. The data are stored at once in a data bank. This data bank system permits immediate error checks of the variables entered, singly and in combination. Errors can be corrected in a loop. Generating of ERCP reports is controlled by a text file, which contains both control statements and standard phrases. A special program for the document generating was developed by the authors and has been used for 15 years in various applications.
