amended report


Definition A report generated by a diagnostician (typically, a histopathologist or radiologist), which corrects or materially alters the original diagnostic report, such that the patient’s therapeutic regimen needs significant alteration

Standard of care requires not only that the original report be amended (corrected), but that the patient’s care provider is informed of the change and alters management as needed.
