Gordon JRS, Wahls T, Carlos RC, et al. Annals of internal medicine. 2009;151:21-7, W5.

This study discovered that more than half of newly identified aortic dilations on computed tomography scans were not documented by clinicians in subsequent encounters. The authors advocate for improved systems to follow up on abnormal test results.
