Published:September 04, 2022DOI:
      A vascular lab procedure culminates in a diagnostic report that is a combination of the data generated on the vascular lab equipment, physician interpretations, and recommendations.

Computerized capture of data from the equipment and transmission into a reporting system is the definition of “automation” in this article. In this article, we describe an organized approach to collecting data generated on vascular lab equipment and delivering to reporting systems to decrease error and improve efficiency.
