Abstract

Consensus was reached by the PFDC on many clinically relevant considerations for performing, interpreting, and reporting MRI defecography. A corresponding synoptic interpretation template was suggested based on these consensus guidelines (Table 2). The described technique and template can be augmented with additional radiological maneuvers and report elements based on specific patient indications, health care provider preferences, and local practice patterns, but the suggested verbiage and steps should be advocated as the minimum requirements when performing and interpreting MRD in patients with evacuation disorders of the pelvic floor.
